(SALEM, Ore. ) - The former head of the Oregon State Police Office of Professional Standards pled guilty Thursday, and was then sentenced in Linn County Circuit Court on one count of Official Misconduct in the First Degree.

He also submitted his resignation to the Department on Wednesday, June 18, ending his 15 year career with OSP.

According to the Linn County District Attorney's Office, 39-year-old Jeff Randall Lanz, was sentenced to:

12 months Bench Probation 3 Days in Jail (beginning today)

Prior to Thursday's plea and sentencing, Lanz agreed to reimburse the Department of State Police in the amount of $485.19 for repayment for misusing a state issued fuel card to gas up his personal vehicle last October.

OSP received repayment on Wednesday. He is only the second high-ranking State Police officer in the agency's history to be convicted of a crime.
