In Dallas, a police officer has been accused of sexual assault while on duty for forcing a woman to give him oral sex and intercourse in exchange for her freedom.
In September 2013, cop La'Cori Johnson pulled over two women and ran background checks on them both. When he returned to their car, he told one woman that there was a warrant out for her arrest, and to get into the back seat of his squad car. Johnson told her friend to leave. Then he drove the woman to a deserted street and told her "You don't have to go to jail if you do what I tell you to do." Out of fear of incarceration, the woman, who remains unidentified, says she cooperated with the officer's sexual demands.
The alleged victim reported the sexual abuse on October 4, 2013 and Johnson, a former athlete for the big Texas football school Southern Methodist University, was put on administrative leave shortly after. The Dallas Police Department is investigating the case and questioned Johnson this week, which resulted in his resignation and arrest. However Johnson's bond has already been paid and he is somewhere walking around right now. Sigh.
