Former Des Moines Police Officer Gets More Prison Time

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa - A former Des Moines police officer has entered an Alford plea to more charges in connection with using excessive force during a 2008 traffic stop.

Mersed Dautovic, 29, entered the plea Friday to assault, felony misconduct in office and perjury. An Alford plea means Dautovic doesn't admit guilt but acknowledges there is enough evidence to convict him.

Dautovic was given a five-year sentence Friday that will run concurrently with a federal 20-month sentence.

Dautovic was convicted this week on separate charges related to the 2008 traffic stop. Dautovic and his partner, John Mailander, were accused of beating Octavius Bonds with batons. Bonds and the driver of the car later sued the city, which paid $500,000 to settle the case.

Mailander pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice.
