A former officer with the Greeley, Colorado, Police Department has been found not guilty of sexually assaulting a woman he pulled over in March 2011. Prosecutors had accused the defendant of molesting the woman, but jurors said that they had trouble believing her testimony at trial.
In fact, both the plaintiff and the defendant had credibility problems with the jury. In the defendant's case, while being interrogated by his fellow officers, he spent an hour denying that he had pulled over the woman's vehicle before admitting it. The victim, meanwhile, had falsely claimed to be the victim of an assault in a previous incident.
