On April 20, 2010, a former Cottage Grove Police Department police officer, Kim Scott Graham, was convicted for possession of child pornography. He was sentenced to 60 months in prison. A search warrant was executed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at Graham's residence on March 6, 2009. Graham was still a police officer employed by CGPD when the warrant was served.
Graham plead guilty to the charge, and admitted that over a 5 year period he possessed in excess of 600 child pornography images.
