A police officer was sentenced to four years of prison and fined 300,000 yuan ($44,857) for selling over 50,000 criminal records to a consulting company in Beijing.

The police officer, surnamed Nie, accepted bribes of over 320,000 yuan in total from an employee of RISQ group surnamed Dong, a company that verifies job applicants' employment backgrounds for clients, the Beijing News reported on Friday. 

Nie used his ability to access the internal policing system to check personal information and criminal records, which he then emailed to Dong.

An auxiliary police officer surnamed Guo helped Nie, pocketing 95,000 yuan in bribes. Guo was sentenced to 1.5 years in prison and fined 100,000 yuan. Dong was sentenced to two years of prison and fined 500,000 yuan.
