FORT COLLINS - A former Longmont police officer who admitted to the attempted sexual assault of a woman in Loveland was sentenced Tuesday to eight years of sex offender intensive supervised probation.
Christopher Martinchick, 43, also must register as a sex offender and was ordered to serve six months in jail on work release.
Martinchick pleaded guilty in 8th Judicial District Court in November 2013 to attempted sexual assault, a class 5 felony, and invasion of privacy for sexual gratification, a misdemeanor.
Martinchick was arrested last July following a Larimer County Sheriff's Office investigation into a reported sexual assault that occurred in Loveland. The adult female victim told police that on two separate occasions, Martinchick engaged in sexual activity with her while she was sleeping and under the influence of a prescribed muscle relaxant.
Sexual images taken without the woman's consent while she was sleeping were found on computers and a cellphone that the sheriff's office searched as part of the investigation.
Conditions of the sex offender intensive supervised probation include that Martinchick must comply with any counseling or substance abuse treatment as recommended, have no contact with anyone under the age of 18 other than his own children, register as a sex offender and have no contact with the victim.
Martinchick must report for work release within 14 days. He will also serve two years supervised probation concurrent with the sex offender intensive supervised probation.
