Edmonds officer resigns amidst sex chargeson January 15, 2013 @ 4:18 pm (Updated: 4:20 pm - 1/15/13 )
Daniel Lavely was on patrol last May when he stopped the 28-year-old woman on Highway 99.
She was released, but Snohomish County prosecutors say he contacted her later, and they drove in his patrol car to a remote location where they had sex.
The 48-year-old officer was on paid leave while the Edmonds Police Department conducted an internal investigation. He resigned Tuesday just before he was going to be disciplined, which could've included being fired.
He still faces trial in May for a charge of custodial sexual misconduct. Lavely had been with the department for eight years.
