Detroit police officer Deon Nunlee, 39, is accused of sexually assaulting a 31-year-old woman who called 911 to report being attacked by her boyfriend.
Nunlee faces three counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count each of assault with intent to penetrate, and misconduct in office, reports the Detroit Free Press.
Prosecutors allege that Nunlee and his partner responded to a domestic disturbance complaint at a home on Detroit’s northwest side around 3 a.m. on October 30, 2013.
A woman, 31, claims that after the officers arrived one remained downstairs with her boyfriend while the other took her upstairs to a bedroom. She says the officer then assaulted her in the bedroom, and told her he would return later that morning, reports Beaumont Enterprise.
According to police, Nunlee did not return.
Police Chief James Craig said Nunlee was connected to the assault through DNA evidence.
"This is the type of misconduct that should never happen," Craig said. "This does not reflect the work the Detroit Police Department does each and every day."
The assault was reported to police the next day by the woman.
Nunlee’s partner is not being charged in the case and is believed to have done nothing wrong, says Craig.
Craig stated it is common to separate parties at domestic dispute situations, and keep them at a safe distance. But in this case they were in different areas of the home.
For officer safety, Craig said, “an officer should never lose line of sight of their partner.”
Nunlee has not denied the allegations, but chose to remain silent after being read his Miranda rights.
In the summer of 2006, Craig Jaret Hutchinson found himself in a flagging relationship. Deciding that impregnating his girlfriend would repair the relationship, he secretly poked holes in his condoms.
When she became pregnant, Hutchison sent her a series of text messages informing her of what he had done. The girlfriend, whose identity is protected by a publication ban, called the police.
Hutchinson, 43, was taken into custody on Thursday night. On Friday morning, after nearly seven years of trials, Canada’s top court unanimously upheld Hutchinson’s sexual assault conviction.
He will serve his 18-month jail sentence on a charge of sexual assault.
The Supreme Court’s 7-0 decision decreed that Hutchinson had deprived the woman of her ability to consent to sex.
“The accused’s condom sabotage constituted fraud…the result that no consent was obtained,” wrote Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin and Justice Thomas Cromwell.
Hutchinson’s case has been moving through Nova Scotia’s court system for more than six years. At his first trial, Hutchinson’s actions were deemed “dastardly,” but he was acquitted. The Crown appealed that decision, leading to a second trial in December 2011, at which he was convicted.
In January 2013, Hutchinson appealed to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court, claiming that his sentence was harsh and excessive, and that the woman voluntarily consented to have sex with him.
The Nova Scotia Court of Appeal split its decision, which gave Hutchinson an automatic right to appeal and led to his appearance before the Supreme Court.
“The victim had consented to protected sex. Condom-protected sex. She did not consent to unprotected sex,” stated Crown prosecutor Jim Gumpert.
“It’s been hard fought and it’s been draining and so obviously it’s a disappointing outcome,” said Hutchinson’s lawyer Luke Craggs, who described the process as a very long battle. “But, at the very least, there’s a measure of closure in it.”
“I don’t know if there are going to be any other cases like this,” added Craggs. “It’s not every day that we normally hear about someone sabotaging the birth control that a woman was counting on.”
In addition to his 18-month sentence, Hutchinson also gave a DNA sample at his trial. His name was placed on the national sex offender registry.

A British man who traveled to Florida so he could have sex with an underage girl and then raise an incest family was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Monday.
Shuhel Mahboob Ali, 40, made contact online last year with an undercover investigator posing as the father of a 13-year-old girl.
The Daily Mail reported that Ali told the agent how he wanted to “settle down with a girl and raise a couple of daughters for ‘the lifestyle,’” according to the criminal complaint.
From January to April 2013, Ali corresponded with the undercover agent via the Internet, describing to him in graphic detail what he would like to do their fictitious children.
He said that “once the mid-wife left” he would begin to sexually assault their daughter.
According to court records obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, Ali said, “When you start with very, very, very young, you can mold them to believe anything and do anything you see.”
Ali said he wanted to raise a “daughters-only” family.
He told the undercover agent he would take the Florida teen back to the United Kingdom, and “begin to train her sexually and prepare her for a family.”
Ali traveled from London to Sanford in April, when he met the undercover agent.
Agents from the Department of Homeland Security and local sheriff’s deputies arrested Ali near Titusville. He was taken into custody in North Brevard County.
Police found two hooded face masks bondage tape, condoms and cameras in his bag. They also discovered child pornography on his laptop.
Ali pleaded guilty to enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity.
“It is truly unimaginable that monsters exist and walk among us with the purpose of victimizing our most precious citizens,” Sheriff Wayne Ivey said at the time of his arrest.
“I want this message to be absolutely crystal clear: We will use every lawful resource we have in our possession to find and remove you from society if you try to harm a child, no matter where you may be on this planet.”
A Utah high school teacher pleaded not guilty Thursday to three counts of first degree sexual assault on a 16-year-old student.
Brianne Altice, 34, teaches at Davis High School, in the Mormon community of Kaysville. She was arrested in October for an alleged sexual relationship with a minor.
She appeared in court for her arraignment Thursday wearing high heals, a tight-fitting shirt and slim pants.
The victim, now 17, told investigators in November that he had sex with Altice on three occasions in 2013.
He said he was unhappy that his parents moved to Utah from another state. He claims he started doing drugs and skipping class to hang out with Altice.
"The defendant occupied a position of special trust in relation" to the juvenile, prosecutors wrote.
She allegedly had sex with the teen in her home and in a church parking lot.
Police say the teen was able to specify tattoos and where they were on the teacher’s body.
Police said there may be other potential victims.
Altice began teacher in the district in 2004. She was a prep time specialist at Wasatch Elementary. In 2005, she began teaching English at Sunset Junior High. In August 2012, she was hired at the high school.
Altice’s husband filed for divorce in November and she has been placed on administrative leave from her job.
Judge Thomas L. Kay scheduled a jury trial for May 12.
Administrators at a Minnesota senior living home are accused of impeding a rape investigation, according to recently filed court documents.
Edgewood Vista caregiver Andrew Scott Merzwski, 30, was convicted of sexual assault on an 89-year-old patient and was sentenced to 53 months in prison in January.
During an investigation, an administrator at the Hermantown facility told a sexual-assault nurse that the elderly victim lied about being sexually assaulted. The administrator said the victim had flirted with Merzwski.
“Did she tell you that this was consensual? Did she tell you that she flirts with this boy mercilessly?” Marilyn Moore, clinical services director at the home, asked the nurse, according to court testimony.
"I was just shocked that somebody was so blatantly putting the blame on this woman," said nurse examiner Theresa Flesvig.
While the state Department of Health found Merzwski liable, the facility wasn't held responsible in the incident.
State Ombudsman for Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Roberta Opheim says these court documents raise new questions about what the facility could have done differently.
“The question has to be asked: Why wasn’t the facility held accountable for the neglect of care?” Opheim asked.
The Health Department said an investigation found Edgewood Vista had abuse prevention policies in place and that Merzwski had received abuse prevention training.
The elderly woman went through a great deal before her story was taken seriously.
After the incident was reported to police, Merzwski admitted to police that he had had intercourse with the woman. But the 89-year-old was still transferred to St. Luke’s Hospital in Duluth where she was locked in a psychiatric ward for three days until investigators determined she was telling the truth.
“The room she was in was dark and cold … and they locked her in at night and all she had was a blanket,” Flesvig said in testimony filed with the court.
Days later, a physical exam proved she had been assaulted. Flesvig found a laceration on the woman that was the "biggest tear" she had ever seen in six years of working in the field.
A 21-year-old Florida woman was arrested for filing a false police report in order to cover for missing work.
Alexandra Anne Westover, 21, reported a broad-daylight sexual assault on the Florida Turnpike. Westover claimed she had a flat tire around 9 am on Tuesday. When she pulled over, a man in a white vehicle also pulled over and asked if she needed help. She said the man attacked and sexually assaulted her in her car.
More than 100 man-hours were wasted in the search for the rapist before Westover admitted to lying, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
Florida Highway Patrol had already reviewed the rush-hour tape from the turnpike and never found Westover’s vehicle among the images. They pressed her about whether she was lying, but she stood by her story.
On Thursday, Westover’s father called the sheriff’s office and told them the story was a hoax.
Westover admitted to a sheriff’s deputy that she made up the story so she wouldn’t get in trouble for missing work at he great-uncle’s home.
She was charged with false report of a crime and perjury. She was released without ball on Friday.

Former gym teacher Matthew LoMaglio is currently serving a four-year jail sentence for sexually assaulting a then 8-year-old boy back in 2006 and 2007, and now, reports are claiming that 22 of his fellow teachers wrote letters to a judge supporting their former colleague during his recent trial. This has outraged parents of students at the Rochester, New York school as well as parents all over, and some have started a petition demanding the names of the teachers who are supporting the sex offender.
“We believe that children in the Rochester City School District (RCSD) are in danger,” reads the petition. “The lack of cooperation stifles the investigation, impedes discovery of the abuser, and lengthens the amount of time a child is in danger, until authorities uncover the abuse and intervene. As responsible parents, family members, friends, community members and concerned citizens, it is our duty to demand full justice for the child that was sexually assaulted, and to do everything we can to protect other children from being sexually abused.”
According to reports, parents attempted to file a request under the Freedom of Information Act in an effort to get the names of the 22 teachers, but the judge denied their request, saying that it could only be made by government officials.
Angry parents are expressing their disgust at the supportive teachers in their comments on the petition.
“Any teacher supporting this guy is a scumbag and should not be working with children,” wrote one livid parent.
School officials are reportedly also trying to get their hands on the names of the teachers that wrote letters to the judge supporting the abuser.
“We can tell you with great certainty that the City School District did not authorize any employee to write a letter supporting Mr. LoMaglio,” said a school official to Fox News. “The letters are part of a sealed court record, but we are working through legal channels to obtain them and simultaneously conducting an internal investigation. If employees used work time or resources to write such letters, or pretended to speak on behalf of the District, we will take disciplinary action.”
In the meantime, the online petition has garnered hundreds of signatures and is being spread all over the Internet. LoMaglio is currently serving four years in prison for the sexual assault.
Teens Sentenced to Jail For Sexual Assault of 13-Year-Old Special Needs Girl, But Won't Go To Jail Until After Graduation
Three high school students in Commerce, Georgia are being sent to jail for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old special needs girl, but the judge’s sentence will actually allow them to attend class for the remainder of the school year.
Nicholas Joiner, Timothy Jermaine Clay, and Drashun Upadhyay will all be allowed to attend school but will be forced to go to jail within a week of their graduation in May. All three East Jackson Comprehensive High School students have been charged with various crimes, including child molestation and even statutory rape for one.
In total, six young men are involved with this case and will all be charged. Joiner, Clay, and Upadhyay all received four years of confinement in jail and 20 years of probation, among other sentences.
The sexual assault against the 13-year-old girl occurred in December 2012, and even though the perpetrators could begin their sentences now, legal experts say that it’s not uncommon for sentences to be delayed for convincing reasons like high school graduation.
The man suspected of being the Swiss cheese pervert was arrested at his Philadelphia home Thursday, after an investigation into his harassment of a local woman led police to his address.
The 41-year-old has allegedly been approaching women asking them if they would like to see Swiss cheese on his genitals.
Chris Pagano, the man suspected of being the cheese pervert, has denied the charges against him.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Pagano said. “Sometimes people confuse me with somebody else.”
Priscilla, Pagano’s latest alleged victim, came to police after the man approached her while she was stopped at an intersection. He asked why she had Swiss cheese in her car, then proceeded to ask if she would put the cheese on his genitals.
At first, Priscilla, who asked that her last name not be mentioned, thought he was joking. However, when she began to drive away, she saw the man pull down his pants.
“Now I’m freaked out because I know it wasn’t a joke,” she said.
Police confirmed Thursday night that Pagano was charged with stalking and harassment as well as open lewdness.
