San Diego Officer Arrested In Sexual Battery Case
Monday, February 10, 2014
A San Diego police officer has been arrested for investigation of false imprisonment and sexual battery of four women.
Officer Christopher Hays' arrest came as two more women claimed that he sexually harassed or assaulted them.
Police Chief Bill Landsowne says the 30-year-old officer turned himself in Sunday and was booked into jail. He was released on $130,000 bail.
Landsowne says the case against Hays came after a woman filed a report in December. He says prosecutors were investigating claims by the two women who came forward over the weekend.
Hays could face up to 7 1/2 years in jail if convicted. He has been placed on unpaid administrative leave.
