A former state trooper has effectively ended his career in law enforcement by pleading guilty to felony charges that he sent a video of himself dancing nude to what he thought was a 13-year-old girl.
Douglas N. Sversko, 44, of Lewisburg, pleaded guilty Monday to felony counts of unlawful contact with a minor and criminal use of a communications facility. Dauphin County Judge Deborah Essis Curcullo ordered him to be evaluated for possible labeling as a sexually violent predator.
The state attorney general’s office charged Sversko in February with using an Internet chat room to approach an agent who posed as a teenage girl. Sversko danced naked for the fake teen in front of his computer, investigators said.
Sversko retired from his $81,619-a-year job at the Milton substation in May. Attorney general spokesman Nils Frederiksen said Sversko has no plea deal and faces sentencing in December.
Frederiksen said Sversko’s conviction “will certainly guarantee that he can’t work in law enforcement again, in or out of Pennsylvania.”
