A Florida cop accused of grabbing a woman’s head and forcing her to perform oral sex on him inside his patrol car will not face charges, even though prosecutors have “sufficient evidence” the sex act took place.
They just don’t have enough evidence to prove the oral sex was “coerced or forced.”
Now the Orlando Police Department will conduct an investigation to determine whether Detective Angel Burgos violated departmental policy by inviting a woman into his unmarked patrol car and having her pleasure him orally.
The 18-year veteran remains on the job, but is currently on modified desk duty where he is not allowed to carry a badge and a gun.
The incident took place on December 15, 2016 when Burgos arrived at her house early one morning and asked her to step into his patrol car.
The woman knew Burgos from a previous case he had investigated, so she trusted him, according to BuzzFeed News, who interviewed her.
“He was an officer, I didn’t think much of it, I trusted him,” the woman, who asked her name not be used, told BuzzFeed News.
Inside, Burgos and the woman talked until he began telling her how beautiful she is and kissed her, while unzipping his pants and exposing his penis. When Burgos asked the woman to put her hand on his penis, she declined, and he then touched himself with one hand while squeezing the woman’s breasts with his other hand.
“I was in a vulnerable position, I felt alone and isolated,” the woman told BuzzFeed News. “You have someone who is in a position of power, you trust them … he took advantage of his position.”
The woman said he pleaded with her to “jerk him off,” but she continued to say no, until he grabbed her left hand and forced it onto his penis. When she pulled away, she said Burgos grabbed her by the back of her head and pushed her toward his lap.
The woman said she pulled away, telling him she did not want to do that — Burgos told her to “live in the moment.”
“I didn’t want to do it,” the woman said in her police interview. “I didn’t like the way he was acting about it. I didn’t like how he was turning. He wasn’t the same person. He started turning into this horny guy as opposed to the man that I respected.”
But she said Burgos get forcing her head into his erect penis, order her to be quiet and continuing to tell her to “live in the moment.”
The woman finally gave in, sucking his penis for about 30 seconds before she managed to break free from his grasp and pull away.
The cop then stroked his penis until he ejaculated, wiping himself off with a towel he had in the center console of the car.
The woman stepped out of the car and walked back to her home. She said the cop later phoned her, yelling at her, ordering her not to contact him again and inquiring whether she was going to report him.
She did report him a week later, even though she had her doubts that anybody would believe her.
After all, police do not like to investigate themselves for wrongdoing. Everybody knows that.
But they did investigate and found the woman’s DNA on his pants.
“I was not sure who to talk to,” the woman told BuzzFeed News. “Who can I talk to about the situation, what do I tell them? At the time I was thinking in my head, Are they going to try and blame me for this?“
