And that word is rape.
MULBERRY, Fla. - A central Florida police officer is charged with having sex with a 16-year-old girl while on duty four years ago.So let's get this straight--she was on probation, and he threatened to revoke it. How is that not rape? It's not like she's in much of a position to give actual consent.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says Jody Beaudry committed the crime in 2004. He is the deputy police chief in the Polk County town of Mulberry, east of Tampa.
The 39-year-old Beaudry is accused of having sex with the girl after threatening to have her probation revoked. He was arrested Monday after the FDLE investigation.
Oh, and there's this. From the Florida statutes:
794.05 Unlawful sexual activity with certain minors.--That's rape, Sun-Sentinel. Make a note of it.
(1) A person 24 years of age or older who engages in sexual activity with a person 16 or 17 years of age commits a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084. As used in this section, "sexual activity" means oral, anal, or vaginal penetration by, or union with, the sexual organ of another; however, sexual activity does not include an act done for a bona fide medical purpose.
