A former Baltimore County police officer will serve no jail time after pleading guilty to allegations that he filmed himself engaging in sex acts and neglected calls while on duty.

Aaron Z. Pross, 29, of Newark, Del., received an 18-month suspended sentence and three years probation Wednesday in Baltimore County Circuit Court.

Pross was assigned to the Pikesville Precinct before he resigned last month. He pleaded guilty to one count of misconduct in office. According to the state's attorney's office, Pross took more than 120 images and 20 videos engaging in sexual acts with himself, including one in which he masturbated inside his patrol car while reports of "possible guns involved," were audible over a police radio.

The investigation into the officer began January after he sent a video to a 16-year-old girl and her father contacted police.
