Chicago Chief Expresses “Extreme Outrage” At Cops’ Sex Charges


The actions of two Chicago officers accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a police car were “inappropriate” and can't be justified, Interim Chicago Police Superintendent Terry Hillard said as he expressed his anger at a fresh black eye for his department, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. “I have to express my extreme outrage and disappointment that such accusations have been made against members of this department,” Hillard said.

The 22-year-old victim was crying and walking outside after leaving a male friend's home where they had been drinking and arguing. A marked Chicago police SUV approached with two male officers. They offered the woman a ride home, and she accepted. The woman told police that during the ride, she had sex with one of the officers in a passenger seat of the SUV and that she did not say “no.” Hillard said it was irrelevant whether the woman was drunk. “That has nothing to do with the case.”
