DOVER, Del. (AP) — A former Delaware State Police trooper who pleaded guilty in connection with a series of thefts from a package reshipping company has been sentenced to six months in federal prison.

Jamal J. Merrell was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty in September to a misdemeanor count of deprivation of rights under color of law. The offense involves Merrell using his position as a law enforcement officer to deprive someone else of a right or privilege. Merrell was also ordered to pay restitution to Totaltranslogistics LLC.

Merrell faced a maximum sentence of one year in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.
