Former Philadelphia Police Officer Acquitted Of Sexual Assault

By Tony Hanson

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s a mixed verdict, but a Philadelphia jury has acquitted a former city police officer of sexually assaulting a woman inside his patrol car while he was on duty last summer.

Twenty-eight-year-old Keith Corley admitted to a sexual encounter inside his patrol car, but he told the jury it was consensual.

“I admitted to everything the victim claimed happened, except the conversation as far as who propositioned who,” Corley says.

And there was no forced used?


But the victim, who fled the courtroom sobbing and inconsolable after the verdict, said he sexually assaulted her in a Cobbs Creek park after offering her ride when she missed her bus.

The jury convicted Corley of indecent exposure and official oppression, essentially misusing his position as a police officer.

A prosecutor says Corley faces a possible maximum sentence of 3 to 6 years in prison, but the defense attorney says the guidelines will be much lower.
