A Cincinnati police officer pleaded guilty Monday to two felonies in connection with his relationship with a teenage girl he mentored.

Darrell Beavers admitted to one count each of attempted tampering with evidence and illegal use of a minor in sexually oriented material.

The 45-year-old Beavers, who resigned from the police department, faces up to 30 months in prison and a $7,500 fine when he’s sentenced Aug. 7.

He also could be ordered to pay $9,600 in restitution and spend five years on supervised parole after serving his prison term.

The parents of a 17-year-old girl in the Cincinnati Police Explorer reported their concerns about the teen’s relationship with Beavers in September.

Prosecutors said police discovered Beavers had set up a false police substation at an apartment in East Price Hill, where they found a bed, food, personal lubricant, videos, and a night vision camera that belonged to the police department.

Police said Beavers received nude photos from the teen and then destroyed a cell phone after he learned of the investigation.
