Former Chattanooga Police Officer Desmond Logan has pleaded guilty in Federal Court to sexual attacks against four different women.
He pleaded guilty to "deprivation of rights, where the defendant, acting under the color of law, willfully deprived the victim of her right to bodily integrity resulting in bodily injury."
Logan also pleaded guilty to "deprivation of rights, where the defendant, acting under the color of law, willfully deprived the victim of her right not to be subjected to unreasonable seizure, and the offense included the use or attempted use of a dangerous weapon."
Logan faces up to 10 years in federal prison.
Prosecutors said during the early morning of June 18, 2018, while on duty as a police officer, handcuffed and arrested a woman. Instead of driving her to the jail, he took her to an isolated parking lot. Prosecutors said he then had sex with her without her consent.
The federal information said the woman afterward experienced vaginal pain and a medical examination showed bruising.
In an incident on Jan. 2, 2016, in the evening hours, while working a security detail at UTC, prosecutors said Logan entered the passenger side of a woman's car and claimed he wanted a ride to his car, which was parked in a different lot. Logan intentionally took the car to a different lot - an empty and isolated one, it was stated.
The information says he then put a taser to her leg, then he prevented her from getting out of the car.
Prosecutors said on July 31, 2015, Logan arrested a woman at night. It says rather than taking her to jail he drove her in his squad car to a secluded spot where he had sex with her without her consent.
In a case involving a fourth woman on May 30, 2016, Logan arrested another woman, then drove her to a secluded area. Prosecutors said he caused his penis to have contact with the woman's mouth without her consent.
Logan will be required to register as a Sex Offender.
He is represented by attorney Sam Byrd of the Covert Law Group.
Chattanooga Police Chief David Roddy said, "Desmond Logan is not what the men and women of the Chattanooga Police Department represent. He is an absolute disgrace of a police officer and a human being. His abominable actions tarnish the badge we all proudly wear and diminishes trust so many officers work hard to build every day."
