SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A former San Antonio police officer has been sentenced to 14 months in a state jail without parole after pleading no contest to improper sexual activity with a woman who accused him of raping her in his patrol car while on duty.

The San Antonio Express-News reports Jackie Len Neal was sentenced Monday under a plea agreement that also carries a $5,000 fine and a requirement that he surrender his state peace officer's certificate.

Neal was arrested in November 2013 on a sexual assault charge the day after a 19-year-old woman said she was raped during a traffic stop. He was fired the same day he was indicted in February 2014.

Neal also must pay a $2.1 civil judgment to the woman. Neal contends the sex was consensual.
