NEW York-A former New York City police detective who was convicted of planting drugs on two people has been sentenced to probation after asking a judge not to send him to jail.

The former detective, Jason Arbeeny, a 14-year police veteran, told Justice Gustin Reichbach of State Supreme Court in Brooklyn that he could not look at himself in the mirror anymore. He then said to the judge, “Please, sir, I’m begging you, don’t send me to jail.” He also apologized to the victims.

Justice Reichbach said he had come to court Thursday thinking the crime required a jail sentence. But he said that Mr. Arbeeny’s pleas had gotten to him. He sentenced Mr. Arbeeny to five years’ probation and 300 hours of community service.

Mr. Arbeeny planted drugs on a woman and her boyfriend in 2007.
