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.

Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.
"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.
Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.
"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.
"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
‘One whopper after another’: CNN’s Acosta tears into Trump for lying the Postal Service can’t deliver enough ballots
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta slammed President Donald Trump's litany of lies about mail-in voting at the day's coronavirus press briefing.
"Right at the end of that press conference, the president was just telling one whopper after another about mail-in voting, at one point saying that he doesn't believe that the U.S. Postal Service has the ability to deal with mail-in balloting at election time," said Acosta. "We just need to point out, the U.S. Postal Service put out a statement late this afternoon that says, 'the Postal Service has ample capacity to adjust our nationwide processing and delivery network to meet projected election and political mail volume, including any additional volume that may result as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.'"
