A San Jose, Calif., police officer has been charged with committing a forcible rape while on duty, Santa Clara County prosecutors said Tuesday, reports the L.A. Times.

According to the district attorney's office, Officer Geoffrey Graves and three other officers had responded on Sept. 22, 2013, to a call of a family disturbance. The officers  determined both spouses had been drinking but that no crime had occurred.

However, the wife, a hotel maid, told officers of a nearby hotel where she had previously worked and where she wished to spend the night. According to a police investigation, Graves, who was working solo in a patrol car, transported the victim to the hotel at about 2:32 a.m. She got her key and went to her room alone but heard a knock on the door 15 minutes later and opened the door, authorities said.

According to a statement by the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office, Graves "entered the room, grabbed the victim and pushed her onto the bed. The defendant took off parts of his uniform. The defendant removed the victim’s pants and undergarment. The defendant climbed on top of the victim while she resisted with verbal and physical communication. The defendant forcibly engaged in sexual intercourse with the victim before leaving the hotel approximately 10 minutes later."

God I hope this is not true. But if so I hope this officer enjoys his time with Bubba in prison.
