Citing a lack of evidence, the Suffolk District Attorney’s office says it will not file Massachusetts rape charges against a male Boston police officer accused of sexually assaulting a fellow cop. The announcement comes after prosecutors and detectives conducted a probe into the allegations by the female officer, who says that the male cop sexually assaulted her numerous times in August and September.
Boston Police detectives examined phone records, text messages, hotel records, and other documents, as well as interviewed over two dozen people. The female officer’s husband says that he and his wife plan to keep pursuing the case. They say the sexual assaults took place in several jurisdictions, including Boston.
The female officer says that the male cop forced her to have sex on several occasions and she became pregnant. She says that she had sex with him when he demanded it because she was scared of him.
The male cop has always maintained his innocence.
Rape allegations are very serious accusations against someone and the punishment for committing this type of sexual assault can be very serious. Not everyone accused of rape is guilty of the crime it is important that a suspect obtain the best representation possible to ensure the best defense against these charges.
