OHIO, Pa. – Authorities say a Pennsylvania police officer sent sexually explicit pictures to a woman he had charged with drunken driving, leading to his suspension and the woman’s case being withdrawn.

Allegheny County prosecutors say Ohio Township police Officer Dominic DeJulio was also required to undergo a series of psychological evaluations. But he wasn’t prosecuted because the 40-year-old woman said she did not want to pursue criminal charges against him.

DeJulio received a five-day suspension without pay and has returned to his job. He has worked for the department full-time since February 2015.

The drunken driving charges against the woman were withdrawn Thursday. A prosecutor’s office spokesman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the withdrawal was done to protect the woman from having to be revictimized by the officer at her trial.
