HINDT PROBATION: Former Officer Sentenced To Probation
A Fort Dodge police officer was sentenced to probation Wednesday.
Former officer, 46-year-old Galen Hindt was sentenced Wednesday after he pleaded guilty to extortion.
A woman says Hindt threatened to arrest her for drinking and driving unless she went home with him. She claims he then assaulted her.
In exchange for a guilty plea for the extortion charges, prosecutors dropped a sex abuse charge against Hindt.
He will serve three years of probation.
