NOT CHARGED | SEXUAL ASSAULT – State v. Mr. R. (DMC No. 8248) (Scottsdale Police Department Investigated): Mr. R. had been a former police officer for 8 years who now worked as a manager at a local fitness club. While working there, one of the female clients asked him out on a date. Several nights later they went to dinner at a nice restaurant and then went to a nightclub for dancing and drinks. They engaged in consensual sexual activity, and the next day the woman called and accused him of having “slipped a drug” into her drink so that she would have sex with him. He vehemently denied the allegation. We became involved and pressed the Scottsdale Police Department Detectives for any information as to whether there was actually any drugs in this woman’s system. In addition, we requested that she give a polygraph test and we wanted to know if there was any blood alcohol content results for any chemical analysis conducted. The Scottsdale Police Department ultimately declined to file any charges for Sexual Assault per ARS 13-1406. If Mr. R. had been charged, he would not have been eligible for any type of bond until the case resolved. This means Mr. R. would had to have sat in custody during the pendency of the case. If he were to have been convicted, he would have spent at least 10 years in prison.
