Speed Cameras

Probation for D.C. Cop Who Faked Speed Camera Records

He was supposed to be testing cameras for accuracy, but he falsified the logs instead


A former D.C. police officer who pleaded guilty to charges related to falsifying logs of District speed cameras was sentenced Thursday to two years of probation, according to court records.

David Cephas, who resigned from the Metropolitan Police Department as part of the plea agreement this year, faced three second-degree fraud charges. D.C. Superior Court Judge Yvonne Williams gave him a 180-day suspended jail sentence, and ordered him on probation for two years and to perform 90 hours of community service.
