Okechukwu Efobi, a sergeant with London's Metropolitan Police Service, has pleaded guilty to three counts of computer misuse for accessing a police database to monitor an investigation into his own misconduct. A court ordered him to perform 50 hours of community service and pay a total of £540 ($679) in fines and prosecution costs. He remains employed by the police department but on restricted duty.
