A former Sacramento police officer was sentenced today to one year in jail for falsifying drunken driving reports and lying at a state Department of Motor Vehicles administrative hearing.

Brandon Michael Mullock, 27, was sentenced to five years in prison, but Judge Patrick Marlette suspended that sentence and instead ordered that Mullock serve one year in county jail in order to get five years of probation. If he violates the terms of his probation, he will be forced to serve the prison sentence.

Mullock was taken into custody at the conclusion of this morning's hearings as his family members wept in the audience.

In March, Mullock entered no-contest pleas on four felony charges.
