TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A former Florida police officer accused of sexually assaulting a female driver during a traffic stop will spend two months in jail as part of a plea deal after two mistrials.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports that 44-year-old Vincent Crump pleaded no contest Friday to aggravated assault. He'll also serve five years of probation and relinquish his law enforcement credentials. He had been charged with three counts of sexual battery by a law enforcement officer.

Crump's attorney argued that the sex was consensual, acknowledging that it violated law enforcement standards.
