When delivering the sentence Friday, the judge said Devic is unlikely to reoffend.

His lawyer, Rishi Gill, previously argued photographs sent to Devic clearly showed an adult woman.

The Crown was asking for a one-year conditional sentence that Devic can serve in the community.

Devic was discharged from the RCMP earlier this year and he is no longer a member.
