Former Plymouth Police Chief Will Not Go to Court

Opening arguments in the trial of former Plymouth police chief John Floyd never got off the ground Tuesday. Floyd waited until the jury was seated and then Tuesday morning accepted a plea agreement with the state.

Floyd, who was originally charged with one count of felony solicitation to commit perjury and two counts of felony obstruction of justice for burning evidence in a case, took an agreement which reduced the obstruction of justice charges to misdemeanors. But now that Floyd has pled guilty to at least one felony, he is no longer able to take the oath of office for any law enforcement position in the future.

Floyd will serve 60 days house arrest, 48 months probation and pay over $6000 in fines and court costs.
