In­dict­ments: For­mer of­fi­cers co­erced sex, ig­nored cases

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - NEWS -

Four for­mer South Carolina po­lice of­fi­cers who worked in the crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tions di­vi­sion for Horry County co­erced women into sex or ig­nored nearly 100 cases they were sup­posed to be in­ves­ti­gat­ing, ac­cord­ing to in­dict­ments re­leased Fri­day by a state grand jury.

At least four law­suits have been filed against one of the of­fi­cers, Troy Large. One of the law­suits ac­cuses him of ig­nor­ing the case of a woman who said she was raped and then de­mand­ing she par­tic­i­pate in a nude cat­fight or else he would make sure she lost vis­i­ta­tion with her chil­dren.

Large is charged with six counts of mis­con­duct in of­fice and five counts of third-de­gree crim­i­nal sex­ual con­duct. In­dict­ments against him said he co­erced women into sex­ual acts and had in­ap­pro­pri­ate re­la­tion­ships with vic­tims in cases he was in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

Large de­nied co­erc­ing women into sex in a de­po­si­tion in one of the law­suits.
