CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A Cincinnati police officer is expected to appear in court on Friday accused of not turning in two robbery suspects.

Cincinnati Police say Sgt. Jeff Brunswick had his police powers suspended effective Monday. Prosecutors allege that Sgt. Brunswick knew the location of two robbery suspects, Ricko Morgan and Daniel Lumpkin, but didn't take the correct police action.

The indictment also alleged that Sgt. Brunswick accessed or attempted to access the RCIC police database multiple times illegally. The indictment did not detail what the prosecution thinks Sgt. Brunswick did with the information.

He was indicted Monday by a Hamilton County Grand Jury and placed on administrative leave without pay. If he's convicted, he could face up to 6 years in jail.

According to Hamilton County court records, this is not the first, second or third time this officer has had a run in with the law.

Back in 2005, Sgt. Brunswick was charged with assault but that charge was later dismissed.

In 2008, he was acquitted by the court on one count of menacing by stalking stemming from allegations from a fellow Cincinnati police officer.

The female officer accused him of sending her unwanted text messages and trying to make contact with her son without her knowledge. The female officer also said in an affidavit that Brunswick would show up on her radio run yelling and cursing, and also gave her personal information to a third party "with the intent of causing emotional distress."

The court documents also show that in 2011 Sgt. Brunswick was charged with assault. According to an affidavit, he punched another man in the face and then fled on foot out the back door of a Green Township bar on Werk Road. He eventually pled down to disorderly conduct.  Brunswick's personnel file states his police powers were also temporarily suspended in connection with this incident.

The sergeant's last performance report back in July paints a very different picture of the 30 year police veteran. In the report Brunswick was recognized as an "outstanding leader" saying he "leads by example". The lieutenant who completed the report even recommended Brunswick for a mentoring program of new sergeants.

In Brunswick's file there are also more than three dozen commendations including everything from helping to catch an escaped wild bull, to changing tires, and apprehending drug traffickers.

Brunswick was charged with four counts of unauthorized use of property and two counts of obstructing justice.
