Nathan Geerdes, 42, pleaded guilty in January to forgery, unlawful sexual contact and official misconduct.

GOLDEN, Colo. — A former police officer who worked in Edgewater and Black Hawk was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to committing multiple crimes between 2019 and 2021, prosecutors said. 

Nathan Geerdes, 42, pleaded guilty in January to forgery, unlawful sexual contact and official misconduct. He was sentenced Monday to four years probation. If he violates the terms of that probation, he could face prison time. 

Geerdes was a former Edgewater Police Department sergeant and more recently worked as an officer for the Black Hawk Police Department. He resigned from the Edgewater Police Department in early 2021 amid an internal affairs investigation against him, according to previous 9NEWS reporting. He was fired from the Black Hawk Police Department as a result of the criminal case against him, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Geerdes initially faced four counts of unlawful sexual contact and one count of retaliation against a witness after a grand jury investigation led to his indictment in December 2022.
