Self incriminating...

> A serving Metropolitan police officer who illegally accessed a police database to monitor a criminal investigation into his own conduct has pleaded guilty to crimes under the Computer Misuse Act

Why do I come away with the distinct feeling that he has admitted this in order to be dismissed for a relatively minor offence so that whatever it was he was being investigated for stops and then he is not prosecuted for potentially much more serious offences?

(Or is he really that stupid wrt understanding how IT works, which begs the question of how he got through the recruitment process in the first place?)
