Police Officer In Dallas Arrested For Swapping Sex For Woman’s Freedom
A Dallas police officer is accused of sexually abusing a woman while on duty and in uniform.
Officer La’Cori Johnson, 28, allegedly forced a woman to perform oral sex on him before having sex with her in the back of his patrol car on Sept. 9, 2013.
“You don’t have to go to jail if you do what I tell you to do,” he said, according to an arrest affidavit.
The unidentified woman said she obeyed the officer’s demands because he was armed and she feared going to jail, reported NBCDFW.
The Dallas-Fort Worth station said the whole incident started when Johnson pulled over the woman and another person, performed background checks on both and then told the friend to leave.
The officer, who had been with the department since 2009, told the woman there was a warrant out for her arrest and told her to get into the back of his car, she said.

Johnson drove the woman to a dead end behind the Pecan Square Apartments and parked. Then he got into the backseat and removed his gun belt, according to NBCDFW.
At this point, he allegedly made his sexual demands.
“With any sexual assault, the victim is going to have lasting damage from that attack; but in this particular case, the damage extends beyond the victim, and it impacts the entire public,” attorney Kimberly Priest Johnson told ABC affiliate WFAA.
The woman reported the incident to police on Oct. 4, 2013. Johnson was immediately placed on administrative leave and the department’s Public Integrity Unit launched a criminal investigation.
Detectives questioned Johnson Tuesday, which led to his resignation and immediate arrest.
