Former Memphis police officer gets 7 years for coerced sex with prostitutes
Memphis Commercial Appeal ^ | 01/08/2010 | Memphis Commercial Appeal

A former Memphis police officer pleaded guilty today to charges related to having sex with prostitutes while on duty and in uniform.

James George, 52, one of four officers charged last year, pleaded guilty to three counts of official oppression and three counts of official misconduct.

He was sentenced to seven years in prison, but will ask Criminal Court Judge John Colton Jr. for diversion or probation in a later hearing.

George, an officer since 1996, was assigned to the Mt. Moriah Station.

He resigned last April after he was charged with taking prostitutes off the street against their wills, driving to remote areas and raping them in his squad car.

Sex-related charges also are pending against former officers Daniel Wallace and Larry Orange.

A fourth former officer, Thomas Woods, 54, pleaded guilty last year to misconduct and oppression after admitting to having sex with prostitutes while on duty. He was placed on judicial diversion until 2015 when his record will be cleared if he abides by court conditions.

Now wait a darn minute.

Didn't we have a President that did basically the same thing?

Oh wait, nevermind. I'm thinking of the entire Congress!

Simple evidence gathering or perhaps an intimate interrogation?

Surely someone here will come by and explain this criminal behavior all away.

I’m sure they didn’t, but then again that’s one of the differences between professionals and cons.

Or Overton Square - I drove by there a few weeks ago and it was like the surface of the moon compared to my long-gone college years at CBC. :)
