San Jose Police Officer Charged With Rape


San Jose Rape Cop



” Officer Geoffrey Graves, 38, who has been with the Police Department for six years, was charged by Santa Clara County prosecutors with forcible rape in connection with a Sept. 22 incident.

  The incident began when Graves and three other San Jose officers responded to a family disturbance involving a married couple about 2 a.m., prosecutors said. The officers determined that both spouses had been drinking and had argued, but that no crime had occurred, authorities said.

  About 2:30 a.m., Graves drove the woman to the hotel, where she went to her room alone and fell asleep, authorities said. Fifteen minutes later, the woman heard knocking and opened the door.

” The defendant entered the room, grabbed the victim forcibly and pushed her onto the bed,” Sgt. Craig Storlie, a San Jose police internal affairs investigator, wrote in an affidavit.

  Graves then “took off parts of his uniform with the exception of his bulletproof vest,” climbed on top of the struggling woman and raped her, Storlie wrote.

” Physical evidence corroborates the victim’s allegations,” and the woman identified Graves as the attacker, prosecutors said.”
