LONGMONT, Colo. — Andrew Libby, 34, who posed as a "porn inspector" to get videos from an adult store last summer, was sentenced Friday to two years probation.

Libby went to the Mile High Emporium in July, showing clerks a fake police badge and telling that he was a member of the Longmont police "age verification unit," which does not exist.

The clerks did not give Libby any material.

Kristi Sanders, Libby's lawyer, told Boulder County District Judge Maria Berkenkotter that Libby has a bipolar disorder and shows signs of schizophrenia. After watching a pornographic video featuring an actress he thought he recognized as a 15-year-old girl, Sanders said, he thought the discovery put his life in danger and that he needed FBI protection.

“He was very concerned that Mile High Emporium was making, and selling, videos with underaged girls in them,” Sanders said. “At the time this occurred, Mr. Libby was suffering from delusions.”

Libby has reportedly been in and out of the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Fort Logan since his Aug. 12 arrest.

Prosecutor Karen Peters told the judge the district attorney’s office agreed to drop some of the other charges against Libby after it became clear that they weren’t dealing with a sex offender, but with someone suffering from mental health issues. Libby also was facing an illegal weapons charge after police found knives, a semi-automatic handgun, and several large swords at his home.

Prosecutors dismissed all other charges as part of a plea deal. Libby pleaded guilty to felony impersonation of a peace officer and has been sentenced to two years probation. He is barred from owning weapons or visiting the store during the probation period.
