Florida Police Officer Charged with Threatening to Arrest Women If They Didn’t Perform Sex Acts on Him


Florida police say a deputy held multiple women against their will in his patrol car and threatened to take them to jail if they didn’t perform sex acts on him. The 40-year-old deputy is facing a litany of charges and has since resigned from his position as a Daytona Beach police officer.

According to police, the defendant was off-duty and wearing plain clothes when he drove past a woman and told her to get into his marked cruiser. The woman asked if she had to and the officer replied, “Yes you have to.” Under duress, the woman got into the officer’s cruiser and he started driving around, she told authorities. As he drove, the officer told the woman to perform oral sex on him. She refused. The officer then told the woman that if she didn’t perform oral sex on him, he would take her to jail. She later told police that the officer grabbed her and pulled her toward his lap. She pulled away and asked to get out. He then forced the woman to expose herself in order to be let out. She immediately called 911, police said.

The woman told investigators that she spoke to other women, some of whom were sex workers, and the sex workers told her that the officer frequented the area in his sheriff’s cruiser and paid women for sex acts.

In an affidavit, police wrote that the victim was touched against her will and believed that the man was acting under the authority of law enforcement. The victim stated that she was scared because she believed that he was a deputy who would harass her.

Then a second woman reported a similar incident. She told police she had a “bad feeling” when she saw the officer make a U-turn and start following her. He told her to get into his cruiser. The officer asked her if she wanted to make some money. She told him that she was not a sex worker. According to the woman, he tried to force her to touch him sexually, but she refused and asked to be let out of the car. When she tried to get out, she pulled the door handle and realized it was locked. She told the officer that she wouldn’t report him if he just let her out. But the officer said, “No, I’m not done with you yet.” He then threatened to take her to jail.

The officer is facing two counts of battery, false imprisonment, bribery, and solicitation to commit prostitution.
