Controversial former Denver police officer Joe Bini will have to register as a sex offender and will be on intensive supervised probation for two years following sentencing Friday on sex-related charges.

Bini pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual contact, a misdemeanor, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor,a felony, in connection with an incident last May.

He paid two teenage girls $20 to have sex in front of him and then touched one of the girls. The incident happened in a back room at his wife’s downtown Denver nutrition store.

In accordance with Friday’s sentencing, if Bini stays out of trouble for two years, the felony charge will be cleared from his record.

Bini is retired from the Denver Police Department.

He is best known for authoring a faulty “no knock” search warrant in 1999 that sent police to the wrong house where they shot and killed Ismael Mena, who never should have been in the line of fire.
