A Kansas City, Missouri, police officer is accused of having sex with two women in exchange for not arresting them.

Officer Jeffrey Holmes has been charged with two felony counts of acceding to corruption.

One of the woman told police she was working as a prostitute when she had sex with the 47-year-old officer in a south Kansas City motel.

The prostitute said on March 24 she was working out of the motel when she received a call from a man who said he wanted to meet her.

She said the man, who was later identified as Holmes, showed up in his police uniform with his gun.

Holmes allegedly told the woman she was “busted for prostitution” and ordered her to put her hands behind her back. The woman refused, saying she “knew something wasn’t right” because Holmes didn’t have a police radio with him.

She later told detectives she called the front desk and asked the desk clerk to come to her room. When the clerk left, Holmes told her he wanted her to be a “snitch” and started to “’rub and hug” her.

The woman said she then had sex with Holmes “because she wanted him to leave.” Police said she reported the incident as rape about three weeks later and identified Holmes as her attacker after she ran into him in a police parking lot April 26.

The other woman told prosecutors in April she was approached by Holmes, who once again was in uniform, and he asked her if she was a prostitute.  She said she told him she wasn’t but he ordered her to take him to her motel room.

The woman, who had an outstanding warrant and marijuana in her room, said Holmes told her she was going to have sex with him and when she asked him why, he responded: “because you don’t want to go to jail, do you?”

Holmes was placed on administrative leave after the April incident, but one month later he was suspended with pay.

Holmes, who is a 13 year veteran, was assigned to the South Patrol Division.
