HAMILTON, Ohio (WXIX) - A former Hamilton police sergeant is now pleading guilty to charges stemming from his September 2022 arrest.
Casey Johnson changed his plea to guilty on Wednesday for charges of vehicular assault, OVI and assault, according to Butler County court records.
As part of his plea deal, the former Hamilton officer cannot seek employment as a police officer elsewhere and must give up his Ohio Peace Office Certification, the court document explains.
He faces up to 18 months in jail and will return to court on Sept. 27 for sentencing.
