COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A former state trooper who admitted forcing female motorists into sexual acts in exchange for dropping traffic charges is scheduled to be sentenced in April.

Bryan Lee pleaded guilty to violating the women's civil rights. He also pleaded guilty to a count of cyberstalking involving threatening messages to a woman he pulled over twice within a month.

Lee's guilty plea last year followed an investigation into traffic stops performed by Lee from 2006 through October of last year. The government says Lee acknowledged forcing women into sex acts while they were under arrest or handcuffed.

Judge Michael Watson scheduled sentencing for April 14 in federal court in Columbus.
