LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- A woman who accused a former officer of groping her during a police stop is not happy with a potential sentence.

John Norman resigned from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in June and pleaded guilty to charges reported by two women.

Norman was set to be sentenced today, but the case has been continued until January.

Victoria Murnane, one of Norman’s victims, came to court ready to speak. Her run-in with the former officer happened during a traffic stop in December 2011.

Norman took a plea deal which includes a felony count of oppression under the law and a gross lewdness misdemeanor, and he would have to register as a sex offender.

As part of the plea, after serving a possible sentence for the misdemeanor, his registration would be wiped away. That’s a reality that doesn't sit well with Murnane.

"Why should he be allowed on the sex registration?” she asked. “I think he should be on there for life after two years. It's like giving your kid a time out. You need to revoke privileges.

“Maybe there might be other victims of John Norman that might be afraid to come forward, but you should make your voice heard. It's the only way to change things."

The sex offender registry is an issue her lawyer and others say is one that needs to re-examined in the state.
