LAPORTE | A former LaPorte County police officer has agreed to spend extra time behind bars.

Under a plea agreement reached Wednesday, David Oldham, 44, would serve two years in prison for criminal recklessness and resisting law enforcement, both Class D felonies, in connection with a police standoff in which he allegedly had a gun outside his LaPorte area home.

In May, Oldham was sentenced to 28 months in a federal prison for allegedly destroying digital images and videos of naked children that were on his home computer.

Oldham, 44, resigned as a patrolman with the sheriff’s office after the pornography charges were leveled in 2011.

Originally, police got involved because of concerns expressed by Oldham's wife over his relationship with a 12-year-old boy in his subdivision that included overnight stays at his home.

Sentencing is set for Oct. 9.
