SPD officer pleads guilty to cyberstalking ex-mistress

A Seattle police detective pleaded guilty today in Snohomish County to cyberstalking/domestic violence in a case involving a former mistress, according to Times news partner KING-TV.

The attorney for Officer David N. Blackmer said his client was “remorseful,” KING-TV reports.

Snohomish County prosecutors are seeking jail time and a no-contact order, but they’re also seeking punishment that could end Blackmer’s career by removing his right to carry a gun, KING-TV says.

Blackmer’s attorney, Ryan Wood, believes that sentence is simply too harsh.

Blackmer, a 17-year veteran of the Seattle Police Department, has been on paid leave since his arrest last summer. He lives near Everett.

He will be sentenced on Jan. 8.
