BOSTON (Reuters) - A prostitute forced repeatedly into having sex with a Boston policeman said she feared the abuse would never stop -- until she stole his badge.
When the officer, Michael LoPriore, telephoned her to get it back, the FBI was tuning in to their conversation, the 19-year-old's lawyer, John Swomley, said on Wednesday.
LoPriore, 37, was charged in federal court on Tuesday with depriving the woman of her rights by using his position as a police officer to force her to perform sex in his car in September 2004.
Under a plea agreement, the 12-year veteran of Boston's police force will plead guilty, resign and never seek another job as a police officer in Massachusetts. Prosecutors are recommending that he serve a year in prison.
Swomley said LoPriore had stopped the teenager in a downtown red-light district known as the "Combat Zone" while he was off duty and in his personal car.
After showing her his badge, he ordered her into the car and drove to several locations where he forced her to perform oral sex, he added.
"She told me the badge was stuffed in a little cubby in the front console. His head was back and he wasn't really paying attention to where her hands were," he said.
Prostitute? Sex? Abuse?
What am I missing here?
Kennedy Kill's 'em. Xlintoon "hooks 'em!" BTAIM sexual predation in Massachewsit seems commonplace.
Sounds like Bill Clinton.
One of the bad cops in DaVinci's Inquest had this happen to him.
Found out how much a "trick" normally costs and multiply by the # of tricks, order the Police officer to pay restitution, court costs, and fire him.
"What am I missing here?"
It's called "theft of services."
If you don't pay, you don't play.
There hasn't been a 'combat zone' there in over 20 years.
I keep seeing images of Eddie Murphy as Velvet Jones, touting his book "I Wanna Be a Ho"
Did they not say if the man is married? I didn't see it...
A prostitute does what she does for profit. He isn't paying. Also, he forced her, the article says, which is rape. Doesn't matter if she is a prostitute or not.
But since this guy's a police officer, they're debating whether or not he should do a year.
A cryin' shame. The bastards razed Scollay Square, too!
One story I read described that the prossie remembered seeing a baby seat in the cop's car . . .
49 states to go...
Does he lose his pension and health benefits?
This guy is a disgusting scumbag. For several reasons, some more obvious than others. I find it hard to believe that he is only facing a year in prison.
How many times do think this a$$clown did this before he ran into the wrong girl?
The police officer forced someone to perform sex with him. IIRC, that's a definition of rape. The fact that she performs it for pay with other people is immaterial, even though it's illegal. If a cop catches someone dealing drugs, it's not legitmate for him to force the dealer to give him drugs for free.
