Former Grand Junction police officer sentenced

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A former Grand Junction police officer convicted of having sexual relations with a 16-year-old girl while on duty in 2000 has been sentenced to eight years to life in prison.

Eric Janusz was convicted earlier this year of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust. He was sentenced Wednesday.

The two met during a runaway investigation involving her brother.

Janusz had testified that they were sexually involved only after she was of legal age.
