Former San Luis Police lieutenant Gerardo Torres pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of harassment in Yuma Superior Court Wednesday after a woman accused him of stalking her over an eight month period in 2011.
In return for a guilty plea, the 42-year-old had five other charges of kidnapping and stalking dismissed.
Torres could be sentenced to twelve months probation, but that is not a firm deal just yet.
The judge still has time to reject the deal and impose a harsher sentence for the former policeman.
According to court records, the allegations of stalking were brought forth by Alejandra Cuevas, who claims Torres called her at work daily and even followed her home.
While on duty in October of 2011, Torres pulled Cuevas over, and during an illegal traffic stop, asked her why she was not returning his phone calls.
Torres has been out on bail since late last year, when the 42-year-old posted bond of more than $37,000 dollars.
He is scheduled to be sentenced early next week.
