DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas police officer has resigned after being accused of forcing a woman to have sex with him to avoid jail.
Dallas County jail records show 28-year-old La'Cori Johnson was being held Wednesday on a sexual assault charge. Online records don't list an attorney for Johnson, who was booked Tuesday.
Investigators say Johnson was on patrol Sept. 9 when he saw a man and a woman, did a computer check and found an outstanding warrant for her. Police say Johnson ordered the man to leave and allegedly told the woman she could avoid jail by doing what he asked.
An affidavit says the woman was sexually assaulted in the patrol car and later reported the attack. Details on the warrant weren't immediately available.
Johnson had been an officer since 2009.
