RANCHO CUCAMONGA >> A former Ontario police officer pleaded guilty in January to having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl he met while on duty.
“Tyler Stone pled guilty to unlawful sex with a minor, which does not require registration as a sex offender as a sanction under the Penal Code,” San Bernardino County District Attorney's spokesman Christopher Lee said.
According to court records, Stone, who was 30 years old at the time of his 2015 arrest, was sentenced to three years probation and was ordered to serve 270 days in county jail.
Stone was still a police officer with the department when the allegations first surfaced, but on Dec. 22, 2015, he resigned.
Investigators learned Stone met the girl while he was on patrol and later developed a sexual relationship with her. The two reportedly had sex at unidentified places in Ontario and at Stone's Rancho Cucamonga home.
Originally Stone was charged with two felony counts of oral copulation with a minor, unlawful sex with a minor and annoying a minor.
He was a five-year veteran of the Police Department.
