Two Atlantic City police officers plead guilty to misconduct


MAYS LANDING — Two former Atlantic City police officers pleaded guilty Monday in Atlantic County Superior Court to charges of official misconduct.

Sgt. Richard Halvorson and Officer Troy Maven both pleaded guilty to third-degree official misconduct. As a result, they forfeit any future public employment.

Halvorson, 42, who joined the department in 1989, pleaded guilty to being in possession of and using a controlled dangerous substance while in uniform Feb. 28.

At the time, Halvorson was a member of the city's Bomb Squad.

Officer Troy Maven, 32, admitted to paying a woman for sex while on duty Aug. 17.

Maven, 32, told Superior Judge Michael Donio he was in uniform when he “offered $60 in exchange for sexual activity to a female.”

Under the plea agreement, they each face up to five years’ probation when they are sentenced Jan. 10.
