Get Breaking News First
(CBS Seattle) – A Spokane police officer has been suspended for two months without pay for his ties to a woman who allegedly has engaged in prostitution, drugs and burglary.
The Spokesman Review reports Officer Darrell Quarles had been involved with a woman he knew had used methamphetamine and was involved in prostitution and burglary. According to the report, Quarles also violated department policy by conducting an unauthorized search of internal records to check on the status of a criminal investigation into the woman.
Police haven not released the woman’s name.
An internal investigation began on May 7; Quarles has been on paid administrative leave since it began.
Quarles waived his right to appeal the suspension to an arbitrator when he signed the last-chance agreement, according to the Spokesman Review. That agreement calls for his firing if he is involved in another instance of serious misconduct.
Quarles will also not be allowed to work without direct supervision and must participate in specific community service assignments.
