Former cop indicted federally for sexual assault, 4 years after he was found not guilty
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A former Memphis police officer now faces federal charges of sexual assault nearly 22 years after it happened.
An indictment for Bridges Randle, 47, was unsealed Tuesday for sexually assaulting a woman while he was on duty.
Prosecutors say Randle was called to the woman’s home on June 24, 2000, for a vandalism call and he sexually assaulted the woman.
Now four years later, the case has been brought to a federal level.
Randle is charged with committing a civil rights offense that includes aggravated sexual abuse.
He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.
