DENVER (CBS4) – A Denver police officer charged with sexually assaulting a woman he pulled over has been found guilty.
The verdict came in Tuesday afternoon against Hector Paez. He was found guilty of sexual assault, kidnapping and false reporting.
[...]“Before I knew it he said I had a warrant and threw me in the back seat of the car.”
The woman did have a warrant for a probation violation, but after driving her to a secluded area Paez told her there was a way to avoid jail.
“He just undid his pants and said, ‘You know what you have to do,’ ” she said. “He thought, ‘Here’s somebody with a warrant and I can do whatever I want to do with them. They’re not going to tell on me.’ “
