Shreveport cop's initial charges include aggravated rape
A police report describing accusations against a Shreveport Police officer arrested today listed the charges against him as aggravated rape and public intimidation, The Times has learned.
The report also listed a handgun as a weapon used.
Cpl. James Greene, 44, was ultimately charged with abuse of office upon his surrender to the Caddo Correctional Center. His bond was set at $100,000.
Greene, a detective assigned to juvenile investigations, is accused of sexual misconduct with a woman who came to speak to him Wednesday in his office at the Shreveport Police Complex about harassing phone calls she'd received.
Later that evening, she notified authorities who responded to a call in the 5700 block of South Lakeshore Drive, alleging she'd been sexually assaulted by Greene at police headquarters.
The woman hasn't been identified.
Cpl. Breck Scott, an SPD spokesman, said responding officers aren't detectives. They write charges on police reports based on their interpretation of initial accusations, he said. After a criminal investigation, and upon consultation with the Caddo District Attorney's office, authorities decided to charge Greene with abuse of office, he said.
Greene, who joined the department in February of 2000, was initially placed on paid administrative leave on Feb. 11 amid an internal investigation according to civil service rules, which state: "When an employee is charged with a felony he shall, and if a misdemeanor he may, be immediately relieved of duty and placed on departmental leave for up to one week at full pay and with continuing seniority."
