PEORIA- A Peoria Police officer retires just before pleading guilty to a crime today.
Former Vice Officer John Couve is sentenced to 90 days in jail.
He retired then pleaded guilty to attempted obstruction of justice, a misdemeanor.
Couve's also sentenced to two years probation after those 90 days.
Couve and Patrol Sergeant Richard Glover were both charged with official misconduct and obstructing justice last August.
Police reports show an unmarked car assigned to Couve was involved in a crash in Peoria last July.
That crash caused a large power outage.
Glover was the first officer to respond and wrote the accident report which allegedly claimed the vehicle had been stolen.
Glover is due back in court in mid-March.
