ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Circuit Attorney said she’s reopening the criminal investigation into a St. Louis Police officer accused of rape.
It’s fallout from an ongoing 5 On Your Side I-Team investigation into how some police use their jobs to pressure women for sex.
For Michelle Roesch, the year 2008 wasn’t easy.
So she got help from two St. Louis Metro police officers who were also brothers. Roesch said they called her ex, and got him to back off.
“I thought they were protecting me,” said Roesch.
But later that evening, things took a turn for the worse.
Roesch was living in a top floor apartment in south St. Louis. Below her lived the cousin of those two cops. And that night, that cousin decided to have a party.
While sitting next to one of the brothers, who was in his uniform, Roesch said he started doing something strange.
“He started checking me for needle marks. He took his hands and skimmed id down my arms, legs and feet, tried to get me to take off my shirt. I was like, ‘I’m not a drug addict,'” said Roesch.
Then she says the 6-foot-plus cop pulled her into a bathroom.
“He started with forcing himself on me,” said Roesch. “He was pulling out my hair, punching me in the face.”
Roesch said then the police officer raped her.
She also said she felt like she had no way out.
“He had the gun right there the whole time,” said Roesch.
She eventually arrived at a hospital with a swollen upper lip, bruising around her nose and the back of her neck, and with pain in her genital area.
One problem: Roesch had just started her period, so a rape kit wasn’t possible.
But even without that, her medical records show she was diagnosed as a victim of sexual assault, with a recommendation that Roesch report it. She did, according to an incident report.
“I was fearful, fearful of retaliation with police,” said Roesch.
So she filed a restraining order against the officer, stating that he had raped her and hit her. The cop signed and agreed to it.
Then she said she reported the incident to police internal affairs.
But Roesch said the circuit attorney’s office eventually gave her bad news.
“They looked at me and said ‘He’s not going to be charged.’ I said ‘Did I say something wrong, did I do something wrong? What’s going to happen when he does it again?'” said Roesch.
Roesch said she just folded into herself and stayed that way for years.
“Everybody kept telling me about #MeToo,” said Roesch.
Inspired, she said she made a decision. She began protesting outside St. Louis police headquarters with a picket sign and a bullhorn, calling out her alleged rapist.
“I did use his name, but I also had checked with law enforcement. It was my First-Amendment right,” said Roesch.
But shortly after the protests began, Roesch was hit with a restraining order. It was a type of protective order that can be easily gotten without a hearing.
In this case, it had been filed by the officer she accused of raping her. It said Roesch could no longer mention him on social media or during her protests.
She was stunned.
“I had never had one before this,” said Roesch.
But it opened the floodgates.
Soon the officer’s brother and his wife filed for and got the same sort of order.
Then, people from St. Louis and Indiana also received orders of protection against Roesch. They’re people Roesch says she’s never even meet.
At one point, Roesch had twelve restraining orders against her.
And soon, someone claimed that she violated one of the orders. Police arrested her and charged her with a felony.
“My reaction was just horror,” said Chelsea Merta, Roesch’s attorney.
Merta took a close look at the orders filed against Roesch. Her conclusion: “They’re frivolous. They filed these orders to silence her to keep her from sharing her story.”
So Merta took Roesch’s case and started getting hearings before actual judges.
Earlier this month, in St. Louis County court, Merta and Roesch were ready to face off with her accused rapist, his brother and his wife, who had all filed orders of protection against her.
“We’re doing all three at one time. So everyone’s testimony will be all at once,” said Merta of the hearing.
But in the end, none of them showed up for court and the judge revoked their orders against Roesch.
Outside the courtroom, Roesch was tearfully grateful.
“I am speaking out on behalf of all of the rape victims,” said Roesch.
But she was also defiant.
“I also want to add you’re not above the law and you can’t and will not silence me anymore.”
Since then, Merta has gotten nearly all of the other protective orders against Roesch thrown out in court. But Roesch still faces felony charges for supposedly violating some of those restraining orders.
In the meantime, the lawyer for the accused officer tells us her client was previously cleared of any allegations and had even passed a lie detector test.
A Chattanooga police officer under investigation for sexual misconduct was previously accused of raping a woman while on the job in 2015, according to another police officer and an alleged victim.
Their statements contradict information provided by police Chief David Roddy, who stated during a June 16 news conference that “there have been [no complaints] relative to this type of investigation” against the officer. The alleged victim, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Matt Lea and an internal affairs file confirm the subject of the current investigation is Officer Desmond Logan.
Roddy said in June that the officer, who was assigned to the Neighborhood Policing Bureau, has been placed on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
Another alleged victim, a current police officer and a separate source assert the officer has been accused of raping at least one additional woman while on duty and that department leadership knew about that allegation. The claim dates back to 2015 when a local woman said she informed the department Logan raped her in an empty parking lot late one night.
Her allegations would turn up last month in a file she said was shown to her by investigators looking into the June 13 incident.
A police officer, who spoke under the condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation, said the most recent alleged assault was just one of at least two Logan committed while on duty.
“It echoed back to the last time when they didn’t act on this kid [Logan],” the officer said. “They knowingly allowed a predator to keep that uniform on.”
Two women told the Times Free Press they made allegations against Logan.
The police department on Friday canceled a scheduled interview with Roddy and declined to set one up the next day. The department did not respond to a request to interview Logan.
Department spokeswoman Elisa Myzal sent a statement, explaining the department’s internal affairs unit would finish conducting its investigation into the June incident after the criminal investigation by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.
Details about the two alleged incidents are similar. Both women allegedly were picked up by Logan, told they were under arrest, taken to a parking lot and raped. The woman who said she was assaulted last month confirmed the incident through her attorney but didn’t want to provide additional details.
The Times Free Press does not identify alleged rape victims. The woman who claims she was raped by Logan in 2015 — shortly after he began actively working as an officer — is identified as Victim 1. The victim who brought forth allegations that resulted in the current investigations is identified as Victim 2.
Victim 1 has tried to forget the night of her alleged rape in 2015.
“I’m more cautious,” she said. “It’s had a toll, mentally.”
She was visiting a friend’s house near Rossville Boulevard late that night. She believes it was May, shortly before her birthday, but she knows it was either spring or early summer. She was in shorts, a tank top and flip-flops.
A police officer pulled alongside her after she left her friend’s house. He told her she was stumbling. That wasn’t true, she said. She hadn’t been drinking and wasn’t on drugs. She was going to a family member’s home for the night.
The officer changed his message. He told her there had been rapes in the area and he was looking out for her. Then, he became agitated. He told her she was being arrested and handcuffed her. She asked why and told him she had done nothing wrong. He placed her in the front seat of his car, she said, and drove.
She said the officer told her his name was “Officer Tate,” but his name tag said “Logan.” Years later, she found out from detectives his first name was Desmond. She became uneasy; she had been arrested before, but this arrest seemed different. She hadn’t done anything wrong, she said. But “Tate” kept telling her she was going to jail.
He eventually turned into a business parking lot on Rossville Boulevard. She thought he was going to remove the handcuffs and let her go. Instead, he pushed her into the back seat and raped her, she said.
The officer repeatedly told her not to tell anyone. He began talking about his children, telling her he had a family of his own, she said.
“He acted like nothing had happened,” she said.
He dropped her off at her brother’s, again telling her not to tell anyone, she said. She promised she wouldn’t.
She rushed inside, crying and shaking, and told her brother what happened. She wrote down everything she could remember before calling police, she said.
She explained what happened and was told to go to a hospital. The hospital sent her to the Partnership Rape Crisis Center, where she told her story and was tested for signs of rape. She also turned over her written account of what happened that night to the rape crisis center, where she was told it would help with an investigation into the officer, she said.
A portion of an Open Records Act request filed in June seeking the rape test’s results has not been responded to. Logan’s personnel file and internal affairs file have no mention of Victim 1 or any previous sexual assault complaints before Victim 2, the woman who reported the June 13 incident. The personnel file has little more than hiring paperwork.
Logan’s internal affairs file contains one sheet of paper. The top lists personal information: name, employee number, badge number and hiring date along with his department, division and sector. Below, reads “Incidents.”
The file lists several general allegations made by Victim 2 for the alleged sexual assault last month. The investigation into that incident remains ongoing.
A Knock on the Door
Little has officially happened in the three years since Victim 1 said she was raped. There is no record of an official investigation in Logan’s files.
She said she is trying to deal the best she can with what she said happened that night.
“I’ve tried to forget,” she said.
Three weeks ago, everything changed. Chattanooga Police Department internal affairs investigators came to her house, she said. They told her they had been looking into another case and came across her file. Two detectives with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office also stopped by. With them, they had a file with her allegations — the sheet of paper she had written on the night of the alleged rape.
Two agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation also came. The FBI did not confirm nor deny an investigation into Logan.
“Longstanding Department of Justice policy prohibits the FBI from confirming or denying the existence of any investigation,” bureau spokesman Jason Pack wrote in an email.
However, the detectives left businesses cards, which Victim 1 showed the Times Free Press.
Chad Phillips, the attorney representing Victim 2 for Sutherland & Belk, PLC, confirmed the law firm is gathering information for a legal case.
Chattanooga Police Department representatives have said over the last month they take sexual assault allegations seriously. Roddy echoed that sentiment during the June 16 news conference.
“When a community member comes forward and states an officer has not upheld his or her oath, failed to serve and protect or violated their trust, that officer will be questioned,” Roddy said. “His or her actions will be investigated, and if found true, that officer will be held accountable.”

Here is the link to the article and a few quotes. Rapist Cop Rleased
Rapist cop Stephen Mitchell is today branded a psychopath who will always be a danger to women by his own DAUGHTER.
She gave the chilling assessment after the Sunday People revealed how the sex predator was freed after just seven years behind bars.
The decision sparked outrage from 50-year-old Mitchell’s victims – who could number as many as 30.
The pervert police constable was warned by the judge who sentenced him that he might never be released.
But in a damning interview, Mitchell’s daughter Abbey, 22, has revealed how her father…
■ TERRORISED her with violence when she was growing up.
■ BOMBARDED her with phone calls from behind bars, saying ‘You will always be my little girl’.
■ And she believes he FOOLED parole chiefs into thinking he was a changed man by taking sewing and embroidery classes in jails.
Abbey said: “My father is a psychopath and he will always be a danger to women.
“He’s pulled the wool over the eyes of the Parole Board but he’s not changed a bit.”
Abbey was just 15 when she discovered her father had raped and sexually abused vulnerable women, including heroin addicts and a disabled girl, after offering them help while they were in custody at a police station in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne.
He was given two life sentences at Newcastle crown court in 2011 after being found guilty of two rapes, three indecent assaults and misconduct.
GOSHEN – Retired New York City Police officer Nicholas McAteer of Greenwood Lake was sentenced in Orange County Court on Friday to 18 years in state prison following his guilty plea to two counts of first-degree rape.
Nicholas McAteer, 46, previously pled guilty in his 2007 and 2011 rapes of two teenage girls.
At the time of his guilty plea, McAteer admitted to forcibly raping the girls including one in 2007 when she was 18 and the other, in 2011, when she was 15.
The judgment against McAteer satisfies an 82-count indictment, involving a series of sexual offenses he committed against the girls over a number of years.
Judge William DeProspo also sentenced McAteer a period of post-release supervision.
“Sex offenses are among the most despicable acts that people can commit against others, and can often have profound adverse impacts on victims, especially young victims,” said District Attorney David Hoovler. “In my office, we have made it a priority to treat sex offenses involving child victims very seriously, and will see appropriate, and significant, sentences for those crimes.”
Hoovler said Friday’ sentence against McAteer “will, hopefully, bring some measure of justice and closure to the young people that this defendant victimized, and to their families.”
Rape Victim, Sherrita Dixon-Cole will have to live in a world where the armed and dangerous rapist that kidnapped and raped her while in uniform carrying out state sanctioned oppression will still be roaming the streets where he originally found her.
They have figured it out, gang.

In late June, members and supporters of Desiree Alliance, a sex work advocacy organization, gathered in the Los Angeles office of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to begin organizing for the legalization of sex work. The event featured nearly a dozen sex workers, including adult actress and Los Angeles-based sex work activist, Siouxsie Q.
Attendees at the meeting drafted a manifesto called the National Sex Worker Anti-Criminalization Principles, which author and escort Maggie McNeill described as a document designed to “provide a working template for a national platform” for sex-worker rights.
Members of lesbian and feminist group Get The L Out demanded to march behind the rainbow flag, which marks the start of the event, organisers said.
The group argues the trans movement is attacking lesbian rights and said it protested to protect those rights.
Pride said their behaviour on Saturday was “shocking and disgusting”.
It said they could not forcibly remove the small group because their protest was not a criminal offence, adding “we are sorry” but the “actions of eight people did not stop the joy and love”.

An Alabama corrections officer has been indicted on charges of rape in metro Atlanta.
Matthew Moore, 49, is accused of raping women in three states, including women in Cobb and Fulton counties.
His indictment only pertains to his alleged crimes in Fulton County, the district attorney’s office there announced Thursday.
He was arrested in April at the prison where he’d worked nearly two decades, which is about 120 miles from Sandy Springs.
On June 5, Nikki Yovino went to jail. She had maintained for the previous 20 months that she was raped by two Sacred Heart University students in the bathroom at a house party. The men she accused said it was consensual, and that’s what prosecutors and police in Bridgeport, Connecticut, believed too.
The state charged Yovino with filing a false report to law enforcement and evidence tampering, based on their allegation that she’d had a rape kit performed while lying about having been raped. Yovino, 19, faced up to six years in prison. She had pleaded not guilty, but on the morning jury selection was to begin, Yovino took a plea deal to spend a year behind bars. She was taken away in handcuffs while her mom dabbed tears from her eyes in the courtroom.
MORNING WINE CELLAR 7/6/18
Audio/Video riff on a short facebook post where I niggasplain what this maga shit is on a street level along with the Adam Bloom pool harassment video.
Department of Public Safety says it has video footage that disproves a woman’s allegations that she was sexually assaulted by a DPS officer in Ellis County early Sunday morning.
The dashcam video has not been released publicly. DPS said Monday it is working to release the video to the public “as soon as possible.”
Lee Merritt, a Dallas attorney representing the woman, said in a statement Monday that his client was pulled over around 1:30 a.m. Sunday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. The DPS trooper who pulled over the woman offered to let her go in exchange for sexual favors, according to the statement. Merritt said when his client declined, the officer sexually assaulted her.
The Dallas Morning News does not typically name those reporting sexual assault.
An Ellis County spokesman said the woman was booked into jail just before 5 a.m. Sunday. She bonded out about 9 p.m. that day.
A DPS spokesman said an officer stopped the woman after a traffic violation, then arrested her when he suspected that she was driving while intoxicated.
Merritt said the woman was taken to the hospital while in custody, but she refused treatment because she wanted to be with her family and attorney.
Once she was released, Merritt said, she returned to the hospital for medical treatment and to “preserve any remaining evidence of the alleged assault.” She was released from the hospital Monday morning, Merritt said in a statement.
Merritt said the woman filed a formal complaint alleging sexual assault as soon as she was taken into custody. He said he was not sure whether DPS or Ellis County took the complaint.
An afternoon news conference with Merritt and attorney Daryl K. Washington was abruptly canceled. Merritt said DPS was preparing to release the video footage at that time, and he wouldn’t be able to address questions about the situation until after video had been released.
In a statement Sunday night, DPS said it would release the video to the public if the Ellis County District Attorney’s office had no objections.
Ellis County District Attorney Patrick Wilson said the video could be released as long as legally required redactions were made. DPS is working to release the video to the public “as soon as possible.”
“Upon learning of the allegations today, the department immediately took action to review the dash cam video,” a statement from DPS reads. “The video shows absolutely no evidence to support the serious accusations against the Trooper during the DWI arrest of the suspect.”
The Associated Press contributed to this report.
A Black Texas woman recently accused a police officer of sexually assaulting her during a traffic stop and now the Texas Department of Public Safety says it has a video that disproves the woman’s allegations, according to the Dallas Morning News.
