Officer Sean Harrington, 35, confessed to investigators that he sent such photos at last six times over several years to colleagues in Dublin, but learned to do it while working in Los Angeles, the Contra Costa Times reported Friday. Harrington has worked for the CHP for five years, and the newspaper reports that he is assigned to administrative duties pending the investigation.
