BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- A former Boulder police officer accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend and plotting to kill her new boyfriend has been sentenced to 90 days in jail and 10 years of supervised probation.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Christian McCracken pleaded guilty to one count of felony stalking and was sentenced on Monday.

McCracken was arrested in the stalking case after his roommate said McCracken had talked of planning to kill the new boyfriend before committing suicide. At the time, McCracken was on medical leave after sustaining a head injury when a suspect assaulted him in 2011.

McCracken resigned from the police department.
