  • Attorney General Jon Bruning today announced former Lexington Police Officer Terrance Smith pleaded guilty to one count of attempted burglary in Dawson County District Court. He faces a possible penalty of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine, or both for the Class IV felony.
     
    “Law enforcement officers are sworn to uphold the law and must be held accountable for unlawful actions,” said Bruning.
     
    On May 19, 2013, Smith was on duty with the Lexington Police Department when he was caught by video surveillance entering the Landmark Implement Inc. business. The business was outside the officer’s jurisdiction. Smith searched through drawers and cabinets of the managers/owners offices before leaving without taking anything of value. 
     
    Sentencing is set for April 28, 2014 in Dawson County District Court.
     
    Assistant Attorneys General Matt Lierman and George Welch are handling the case.
