Former Oregon State Police Spokesman Bill Fugate has resigned and plans to surrender his police certification.
Earlier this week he received a misdemeanor harassment conviction for a 2017 confrontation with his estranged wife.
He was sentenced to 24 months of probation, two days of jail and is required to complete a yearlong batterer intervention counseling program. According to the terms of his probation, he isn’t allowed to possess a firearm.
In his letter of resignation, he said “events in my personal life made this decision the only logical one.”
