pish officer, fancy moral compass! I can only feel sorry for the poor young woman, trusting this db when she called the police for help and consequently knowing or unknowing was manipulated by a figure of authority who all the while knew darn well what he was doing..if there be a manual in the law enforcement line of work on how to be a peace officer and do your job with integrity this blighter sure as heck never turned a page. makes you nauseous to think how many vulnerable people are mistreated all the time by people in some position of power. and never get reported or resolution. hope it starts gettin better the life of this lass

another dirty cop. where does it end? Alleged rapist, pervert, etc. etc. Assaulted by the original perpetrator and then assaulted by the cop who she perceived to be helping her.

Mr. Wallace, let's pretend (as I don't know) you have a 17 year old daughter, and she was violated on as many levels as you allegedly violated this young lady. How would you feel for the rest of your life?

You are a vile man and you will rot in hell, if this is true. My only hope is that you are sentenced to the maximum 3 years (which by the way is absolutely ridiculous), and that your "roommates" violate you in the same manner that you yourself violated this girl, each and every day of your stay.

You should be castrated.
