NC police officer charged with on-duty sex crimes
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A police officer in North Carolina’s largest city has been charged with sexually assaulting two female motorists he had pulled over while on duty.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Officer Marcus Jackson was being held on bond totaling $360,000 before a court hearing Thursday. Jail records did not indicate whether he had an attorney, and a
spokesman did not immediately return a call.
The case began after a relative reported Monday that a 17-year-old girl said she was ordered into Jackson’s car, driven to another site, and assaulted.
The 25-year-old Jackson was charged with sexual battery, second-degree sex offense, extortion, kidnapping, indecent exposure and two counts of felonious restraint.
Police Chief Rodney Monroe says he encourages other potential victims to come forward.
