Ohio cop uses police database to stalk his rape victim after she reports him: prosecutors

Published

on

A former Ohio police officer has been charged with raping a woman in 2014 and then using the police database to stalk her after she reported the crime.

Former Pepper Pike officer Jeffrey Martin, 55, was arrested last month on charges of rape, stalking and menacing. The case was turned over to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office after the Bedford Police Department said that details in the case file contained information that “would have compromised our ability to stay on the case.”

An indictment announced last week revealed that Martin had used a police database to stalk the woman after she contacted Bedford police.

Prosecutors said that Martin pretended to be a private investigator so he could stalk his victim onto Ursuline College campus.

The indictment also noted that Martin had used a firearm during the rape, but it was not immediately clear how it was used.

According to Martin’s personnel file, he had been suspended four times by the Pepper Pike Police Department. Two of the suspensions were related to inappropriate conduct toward women.

The South Carolina Republican declared that America "will not tolerate" ethnic cleansing.

But then he was asked about impeachment.

"Impeachment is a bunch of bull," Graham declared. "It is BS."

"The president has done nothing wrong," Graham argued.

Trump may ‘undo his presidency’ — with Republicans backing impeachment: CNN’s conservative anchor

Published

President Donald Trump's presidency is in peril as Republican lawmakers condemn the administration for green-lighting Turkey's ethnic cleansing of Kurds in northern Syria.

"President Trump this week set fire to the emoluments clause by announcing his own resort would host the G-7 summit. His Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, set fire to his boss’s innocence admitting on camera to the very thing Trump is being investigated for and possibly impeached over," CNN's S.E. Cupp said.

"Donald Trump has put the Republican Party through a lot. Most have gone willingly along with him -- kids in cages, a trade war, protecting Putin, honoring Kim Jong-Un, breaking the law, the lies, the insults, the fake news, the rape allegations. Defending the president over the indefensible has become something of a cottage industry for Republican lawmakers, few of whom have ever dared to call him out," she noted.
