    Aww crap! Pierce County news

    http://www.thenewstribune.com/news/l...ry/256066.html

    Pierce County sheriff deputy held on suspicion of rapeTwo possible on-duty contacts, says Pierce County sheriff’s spokesmanIAN DEMSKY; ian.demsky@thenewstribune.com Published: January 16th, 2008 01:00 AM

    Pierce County sheriff’s deputies arrested one of their own officers Tuesday night on suspicion of rape and burglary, department spokesman Ed Troyer said.
    The 27-year-old deputy was booked into the county jail just after 7 p.m. on two counts of first-degree rape and one count of first-degree burglary, online court records show.

    He was being held in lieu of $150,000 bail Tuesday night.

    The News Tribune is not naming him because he has not been charged.

    Troyer said Tuesday that the deputy, a married Iraq war veteran who has been on the force about a year, is suspected of having sexual contact with an intoxicated woman after giving her a “courtesy ride” home last week.

    He is alleged to have had sexual contact with her at least twice while on duty. The deputy’s account and the woman’s account did not exactly match, Troyer said. “But either way, we believe there’s a crime that goes with it,” he said. “At this point, there’s no doubt that the two were together.”

    The investigation is continuing, but detectives were able to corroborate some aspects of the woman’s story, Troyer said.

    The department moved swiftly given the nature of the allegations, but prosecutors may choose to have an outside agency pursue the case, he said.

    “We didn’t want it to happen again if it was happening,” Troyer said.

    Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor said, “It’s our duty to protect victims of crime and we will do so even when the suspect is a law enforcement officer.”

    Notice the focus on him being a former vet.

    Either way and if true, he is a supreme fucktard.

    It is who I thought it was.

    He was in court with his mouth open like a mouth breather.

    Looked just like any other criminal.

    TACOMA, Wash. -- Pierce County prosecutors on Friday said they will not be filing rape charges against a sheriff's deputy who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman while on duty.

    Deputy Joseph S. Qualls will instead face a charge of first-degree criminal trespassing.

    Qualls was arrested Monday after a woman he gave a ride home to in early January contacted police and said Qualls sexually assaulted her on two separate occasions.

    Deputy Prosecutor Mary Robnett said they looked at every possible charge and decided that the trespassing charge was the only one they could prosecute.

    Sheriff spokesman Ed Troyer said Qualls has a perfect record with the department and has never had any disciplinary problems. He's an Iraq war veteran, was president of his police class, and came highly recommended, Troyer said.

    -----

    For those outside of Washington, here are the elements of the crime.

    RCW 9A.52.070

    Criminal trespass in the first degree.


    (1) A person is guilty of criminal trespass in the first degree if he knowingly enters or remains unlawfully in a building.

    (2) Criminal trespass in the first degree is a gross misdemeanor.
    [1979 ex.s. c 244 § 12; 1975 1st ex.s. c 260 § 9A.52.070.]

    So if the prosecutor is dropping the rape charges means that aspect of the story is entirely bullshit.

    It means her credibility is shot - which could only mean the first time was consent - or he wouldn't have been there unlawfully the second time.

    Lots of variables.

    Pierce Co. deputy won't face rape charges
    06:17 PM PST on Friday, January 18, 2008
    By CHRIS INGALLS / KING 5 News

    Rape charge dropped, but deputy still facing charge of "trespassing with sexual motivation."

    TACOMA, Wash. – No rape or burglary charges will be filed against a Pierce County Sheriff's deputy who had sex with an intoxicated woman he drove home while on duty. Investigators say the accuser is a sex offender with a history of making similar, false accusations.

    Deputy Joe Qualls, 27, will only face a charge of criminal trespass, according to a sheriff's spokesman.

    "He was being held on $200,000 bail. It's been reduced to $10,000 and the charges were amended to trespassing with sexual motivation," said Det. Ed Troyer.

    The accuser, 38-year-old Lorenne Owen of Spanaway, refused to speak to KING 5 News after her claims and the case fell apart Friday.

    1/16/08: Pierce Co. deputy accused of raping woman on duty
    Qualls was originally facing possible rape charges. He was accused of picking up Owen while she was drunk, walking along the road. She says he forced himself on her that night, then returned to her trailer home on two other nights. On one of those nights, she claims he forced her to commit a sex act again.
    But, detectives pieced together some disturbing information on Owen. "In the past, she has reported allegations of rape that have turned out to be unfounded and we have learned that she in fact is a sex offender from the east coast and was arrested for child rape and pled guilty to some sex crimes back there," said Troyer.

    That 1998 case in Pennsylvania involved sex with a 12-year-old boy that Owen was babysitting. Deputies say Owen also made unfounded rape allegations against her boyfriend. She made another last year when she accused police officers who arrested her at the Puyallup Fair.

    The Pierce County Sheriff's Office says it still plans to fire Qualls.
    "He made some very bad judgment calls. There's no disputing there was sexual contact multiple times with this person," said Troyer.

    There is a law in Washington that says police cannot have sex with people in their custody, but investigators say Owen was technically not in Qualls' custody because he gave her a "courtesy ride" home that first night.

    Owen is under investigation, but so far, she has not been charged with filing a false report.

    Qualls has been with the department for about a year. He is an Iraq war veteran.
