MARTINEZ, Calif. (AP) - Court documents show a California Highway Patrol officer is suspected of secretly sending nude photos of a DUI suspect from her cellphone to his own phone.

The Contra Costa Times cites records that reveal a Contra Costa District Attorney investigator has recommended felony computer theft charges against 35-year-old Sean Harrington.

The CHP says the five-year veteran based in Dublin has been assigned to desk duties during the probe.

Investigators say Harrington discovered and forwarded to himself six explicit photos while booking the 23-year-old San Ramon woman in August. The photos depict the woman, who is not being identified, in a bikini and in various states of undress.

Prosecutors said Wednesday they could decide any day whether or not to press charges.

Efforts to reach Harrington for comment were unsuccessful.
