A Texas police officer has been suspended for handcuffing a female suspect and sexually abusing her in his official squad car.
An American police officer, Jackie Len Neal, has been suspended as he stands trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman in the back of his patrol car, according to police reports.
The 40-year-old officer from San Antonio, USA, was said to have arrested the young woman for traffic violation, handcuffed her and sexually assaulted her. Before then, the erring officer who is said to have committed similar offenses in the past, craftily turned out the cameras on board his squad car.
Though Neal said that the accusations are false and an attempt to destroy his name, the police are sure he was the one who committed the act.
"The sexual assault that led to the arrest took place on the south side, after Neal pulled over a 19-year-old woman.
Neal was in uniform, in a marked patrol car, and on duty when the sexual assault occurred."
Neal was charged with felony sexual assault, and was released on bail on Monday.
Another woman made a similar complaint about Neal a few years ago, but she refused to testify against him in court. The department is reaching out to her again.
