A New Jersey cop was arrested for forcing a woman to perform oral sex on him inside the police station in return for favorable treatment.
The incident took place in November, but Newark Police Detective Kenneth Gaulette was not arrested until today.
The 33-year-old cop was charged with sexual assault and criminal coercion.The victim was a 40-year-old woman.
Gaulette turned himself in today with his lawyer and was quickly released on a $75,000 bond.
Gaulette was laid off from the Newark Police Department in 2010 because of budget cuts
and is now making just over $51,000, according to the Bergen Dispatch, which is actually low for a New Jersey cops who can easily be paid in the six figures.
But maybe he agreed to a pay cut upon being rehired in 2012.
After he was laid off in 2010, he and two other former Newark cops were hired by the Clark Police Department, which patrols a township of less than 15,000 where they came with high expectations.
Mayor Bonaccorso spoke highly of all three men. “These gentlemen impressed me a lot,” he said. “They were very well presented and very passionate about their careers and wanting to get back into it. I think these three gentlemen will be a great complement to the department.
But Gaulette didn’t seem to think much of that job as he never mentioned it on his LinkedIn page, claiming, instead, he has been working for the Newark Police Department since 2009 without any interruptions.
