Ex-Portland Police officer guilty of misconduct

Christian Berge joined the bureau in December 2007

KOIN 6 News Staff - PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A now-former Portland police officer, who spent 10 years with the bureau, resigned Thursday and plead guilty to official misconduct.

Christian Berge, 46, was sentenced to 18 months of probation and 120 hours of community service.

The criminal information charging Berge with one count of first-degree official misconduct was filed Tuesday in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

The charging document says Berge "unlawfully and knowingly" engaged in "unauthorized exercise of his official duties, with intent to obtain a benefit" while a Portland police officer between Aug. 12, 2015, and May 3, 2017.

Berge joined the bureau in December 2007 after working as an officer in San Francisco. He worked patrol but had been on front desk duty at the Central Precinct before he was placed on paid leave.
