Posted: Thursday, January 21, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police have arrested a state probation officer on bribery and misconduct charges.

Police said 53-year-old James Stanton's arrest Tuesday in the Nesbett Courthouse, where he worked, came after an investigation into allegations made by a woman on probation. Police said the woman reported that she had received favors from Stanton in exchange for sex and money.

According to the police department, detectives found that Stanton had certified the woman's urinalysis results showed she had not used drugs or alcohol, even though she admitted she used the substances before the test.

Stanton was jailed Tuesday on $10,000 bail.
