KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - A former Florida Highway Patrol trooper, who faced allegations of fixing a traffic ticket in exchange for dinner, was sentenced to five years probation.

Under the plea deal, adjudication was withheld, and Wilfredo Bennett can never be a law enforcement officer in the United States. He must also pay a $5,000 fine.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that he was charged with unlawful compensation for official behavior and official misconduct based on allegations he offered to get a ticket dismissed against a woman if she cooked dinner for him.

Bennett quit the FHP a day after his arrest in January.
