Ex-Florida deputy caught stealing on his own body cam gets probation

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A former Florida sheriff's deputy who was caught by his own body camera stealing cash from a driver he arrested has been sentenced to four years of probation.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports 35-year-old former Volusia County deputy John Braman entered no contest pleas to petty theft, official misconduct and grand theft Thursday, and he will serve his four four-year probation sentences concurrently.

Grand theft and official misconduct are felonies punishable by up to five years in prison or a $5,000 fine, while petty theft can earn up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Braman was also sentenced to time served for misdemeanor charges, though computer records don't show Braman spent any time jailed on the charges, and ordered to pay $1,140 in restitution to several victims.
