Former Chattanooga Police Officer Desmond Logan has admitted to raping three women who were in his custody. He also admitted to pulling a stun gun on a woman to prevent her from leaving her car. The 33-year-old man reached a plea agreement in federal court on September 4, and plead guilty to two counts of deprivation of rights.
Each count carries a possible sentence of 10 years in prison and $250,000 in fines. Logan must also register as a sex offender.
In June of 2018, while on duty, Logan handcuffed and arrested a woman. Instead of taking her to jail, he drove her to an empty parking lot where he raped the woman. The victim suffered bruising from the rape.
In January of 2016, while working a security detail job at the University of Tennessee, the police officer got in the car of a woman and asked her to drive him to his own car. Logan admitted to intentionally directing the woman to an isolated parking lot where he put a stun against her leg and prevented her from getting out the car.
He also admitted that in July of 2015, he raped a woman in a secluded lot, and in May of 2016 he forced a woman to perform oral sex on him.
Chattanooga Police Department Police Chief David Roddy released a statement regarding the the ex-cop’s behavior:
“Desmond Logan is not what the men and women of the Chattanooga Police Department represent. He is an absolute disgrace of a police officer and a human being. His abominable actions tarnish the badge we all proudly wear and diminishes trust so many officers work hard to build every day.”
