(Meredith) -- A former Cleveland, Ohio, police officer has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison after urinating on a 12-year-old girl.

"As a man, I can't see how another man could do something like that, let alone a man who has taken an oath," said the father of the unidentified victim.

Not only has ex-officer Solomon Nhiwatiwa been sentenced, but he also has to register as a sex offender, WOIO reported.

At the end of the sentencing, the judge offered Nhiwatiwa a chance to apologize.

"I'd like to take responsibility," he said to the court. "Apologize for what I did."

However, the judge was unmoved by his apology.

"This court is not convinced of your remorse," the judge said.
