LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A former Lincoln police officer who bought alcohol for his teenage girlfriend has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and a year's probation.

A judge on Friday ordered 26-year-old Scott Bierle to serve three days in county jail per month for the next 10 months.

Bierle was convicted in August of procuring alcohol for a minor. He was cited earlier this year after the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office said he bought alcohol for his 19-year-old girlfriend at a bar on Dec. 16 at a gathering of off-duty officers. The teen was also ticketed on suspicion of being a minor in possession of alcohol.

Bierle resigned Jan. 29, three weeks after he was ticketed. He had been with the Lincoln department since December 2015.
