Police Officer Pleads Guilty to Taking Upskirt Photos

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — Prosecutors say a Prince George’s County police officer has pleaded guilty to taking inappropriate photos of women, including while he was on duty.

The county state’s attorney’s office previously said in a news release that James Sims plead guilty to visual surveillance with prurient interest and misconduct in office.

Now, White has been suspended for one year for his actions, Prince George’s County Police announced Friday. The suspension will be followed by three years of probation, according to WJLA.

Authorities say Sims took “upskirt” photos of two women he had pulled over on traffic stops.

Officials say on June 1, an off-duty police officer from another jurisdiction saw Sims taking upskirt pictures of her in a store in Bowie. Officials say she confronted Sims and called police.

Sims remains suspended with pay from the department. Sentencing is set for Feb. 17.
