LANSING, Mich. — Former Lansing police officer Matthew Priebe pleaded no contest to 5 of the 6 charges against him Monday. He'd been accused of sexually assaulting at least 3 students while he was a school resource officer with Lansing Public Schools.

The plea agreement covered charges of 2nd Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct, Common Law Offense, 4th Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct, and two counts of Assault or Assault and Battery. In exchange, prosecutors dropped one count of Distributing Obscene Matter to Children.

Priebe was immediately taken into custody of the Ingham County Sheriff's Office. He will be held without bail until his sentencing on October 2.


“We are dismissing count three and are recommending a sentencing cap of one year in jail," said Special Prosecutor Pamela Maas during Priebe's hearing.


Little wonder why so many hate "po-po" and the corrupt criminal justice system.

Nope, little wonder at all...

1. Dirt bag should have gotten a longer sentence.

One of Priebe's accusers said he asked her for a hug when she met him in his office in March of 2018.

"...He pulled her hand to his genital area and put her hand on the area of his genitals," said Judge Joyce Draganchuk, reading a police report of the incident. "This was clearly done for a sexual purpose."

She added that he tried to pull her dress up during another meeting two months later.

"She resisted and tried to pull her dress down," continued Draganchuk. "He again tried to pull her dress up and attempted this three times."
