Deputy Arrested for Raping Woman while On Duty
(GA) – Jerry Glover, who has been in law enforcement since 1967, is accused of raping a woman on May 11. Very little information is being released which is common in sexual assault cases.
Deputy Glover is accused of going to the woman’s home while on duty and in uniform, and forcing her to have sex. “Glover knew the woman through his duties as a deputy sheriff, Wilson told Law&Crime in a phone interview.”
“The woman reported the incident to LaFayette Police a couple hours later.” The LaFayette Police Department requested assistance with the criminal investigation from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI).
“As I was briefed on the investigation, it was extremely disappointing to hear the evidence that was being told to me, and that’s when I decided last week that it reached the level that he had to be terminated,” Sheriff Steve Wilson said.
