Posted: Updated:

NBCRightNow.com - A former Umatilla Tribal Police Officer will spend two and a half years in federal prison for inappropriately touching a woman on the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

A federal judge on Monday sentenced Fermore Joseph Craig, Jr., of Pendleton to 30 months behind bars. Craig previously pled guilty to one count of abusive sexual contact and one count of making false statements to the FBI.

Following Wednesday's hearing, Craig turned himself in to the U.S. Marshals service to begin serving his prison term.

After Craig completes 30 months in prison, he will serve five years of federal supervised release. He will also be required to participate in a sex offender assessment and treatment program, and will be prohibited from having any contact with the victim in the case. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.
