SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California police officer is accused of raping a woman at a hotel while on patrol.
Santa Clara County prosecutors have charged San Jose police officer Geoffrey Graves with one count of forcible rape. They say he surrendered to authorities on Monday and posted $100,000 bail.
Graves is accused of raping the woman in September after responding to a family disturbance call at her home. Prosecutors say police determined the woman and her husband had been drinking, but no crime had occurred.
Graves allegedly took the woman to a hotel where she wanted to stay for the night. Prosecutors say he later returned to her room and assaulted her.
It was not immediately clear whether Graves had a lawyer. The AP could not find a phone listing for him.
