Tennessee Police Officer Admits to Raping Three Women While On Duty
Former Chattanooga Police Department Officer Desmond Logan, 33, reached a plea agreement on September 4 in federal court where he admitted to raping three women who were in his custody; Logan also admitted to pulling a stun gun on a woman to prevent her from leaving her car.
Logan has agreed to plead guilty to two counts of deprivation of rights. Each count carries up to 10 years in prison and $250,000 in fines. Logan must also register as a sex offender, Chattanoogan.com reports. Logan eventually resigned before he could be fired.
On June 12th, 2018, Logan, while on duty handcuffed and arrested a woman. But rather than driving her to the jail, he drove her to an empty and isolated parking lot. It was there that Logan raped the woman, the victim suffered bruising from the rape.
On January 2nd, 2016, Logan was working security detail at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga when he got in another woman's passenger seat and asked her to drive him to his own car. Logan admitted to intentionally directing the woman to an empty and isolated parking lot. He then took out a stun gun and put it against her leg, causing her to fear for her safety. He prevented her from getting out of the car.
Logan also had other victims that he raped. Logan admitted that on July 31, 2015, he raped a woman in a secluded lot, and on May 30, 2016 he forced a woman to perform oral sex on him.
Chattanooga Police Department Police Chief David Roddy says:
"Desmond Logan is not what the men and women of the Chattanooga Police Department represent. He is an absolute disgrace of a police officer and a human being. His abominable actions tarnish the badge we all proudly wear and diminishes trust so many officers work hard to build every day."
