Former Goddard cop admits he e-mailed nude photos

WICHITA — A former Goddard police officer accused of using a police computer to send naked pictures of himself pleaded guilty in federal court today to wire fraud.

Calvin Schaffer, 44, admitted in his plea that he arrested a woman for driving under the influence of alcohol on Feb. 27. Later, he contacted the woman and suggested he could arrange for the charges to be dismissed if she would have sex with him.

While on duty, Schaffer used police department computers to send e-mails and photographs to the woman. In the photos, he appeared partially undressed and nude. The messages traveled over the Internet through servers in California and Virginia.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 16. Schaffer faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.
