Phoenix DUI officer sentenced in forgery case

PHOENIX — A former Phoenix police officer who handled drunken driving
cases has been sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty in a forgery
case.

Television station KPHO reports that 38-year-old Jerry
Schuiteboer was also sentenced Friday to two years of probation and he must pay
more than $14,000 in restitution.

Schuiteboer resigned and pleaded guilty to two felony counts of forgery in
July. He was accused of burning his truck in the desert and collecting insurance
money.

Dozens of the DUI cases he worked could be altered or dismissed. Defense
attorneys have said the failure to disclose information about the former
officer’s case prevents suspects from having the opportunity to challenge his
credibility.

But prosecutors said an officer’s testimony in a DUI case is only one piece of
evidence.
