Cop Gets 40 Years for Raping Lesbian

Cop Gets 40 Years for Raping Lesbian


A suspended Rhode Island police officer was sentenced Wednesday to 40 years in prison for raping a woman in an empty police substation in March 2007, according to the Associated Press.

Marcus Huffman picked the then-19-year-old woman up outside of a nightclub in Providence. She was clearly intoxicated, and Huffman, on duty and driving a police cruiser, offered to take her home. Instead he took her to the substation and raped her, leaving her in the bathroom. When the woman's family called 911 about the attack, Huffman was one of the officers who responded to the call. Huffman later said he and the woman had engaged in consensual sex, but she testified at his trial that she is a lesbian and not attracted to men.

Superior court judge Netti Vogel called the situation "something out of a horror movie."

Huffman also faces a 20-year suspended sentence and 20 years of probation, and he was ordered to register as a sex offender upon his prison release.
