Texas Cop Accused of Handcuffing and Raping Teen at Traffic StopSubmitted by Veritas Aequitas on Mon, 11/25/2013 - 22:34
A San Antonio, Texas police officer has been arrested and charged with raping a 19-year-old woman following an early morning traffic stop.
Jackie Len Neal, 40, was arrested on the charge of felony sexual assault on Saturday, November 23. Neal is accused of tailing a woman while on duty around 2 a.m. on Friday, pulling her over, handcuffing her, and raping her in the back of his police vehicle.
“I can't express in words how disappointed and angry I am about this,” said Police Chief William McManus to the San Antonio Express-News. “I am at a loss for words. I am outraged. This is a punch in the eye to the Police Department.”
McManus added that this isn’t the first time Neal has been accused of sexual misconduct, and a woman made a similar complaint against the officer years ago. She declined to cooperate with police on an investigation, however, and the case did not move forward.
