San Diego, CA – A former San Diego police officer sentenced to one year in jail for groping and illegally detaining four women while on duty surrendered Friday to begin serving his time behind bars.

Christopher Hays, 30, pleaded guilty Aug. 22 to false imprisonment and misdemeanor counts of assault and battery under the color of authority by a peace officer. He turned himself in at the downtown courthouse to begin serving the sentence handed down by Judge Charles Rogers last week. It provides also for three years probation.
