A former Washington Park police officer on Monday pleaded guilty to bringing drugs into the St. Clair County Jail for an inmate.
Douglass Young, 61, of 514 Monica Drive, Lebanon, had no prior criminal record and was sentenced to probation, fines and drug treatment for the official misconduct conviction. He was also ordered to turn in his gun and badge to the Washington Park Police Department.
Young was charged June 28, 2013, with official misconduct after taking narcotics and prescription pills into the jail for an unnamed female prisoner.
