Precinct 6 constable’s officer faces sex assault allegation
A sergeant with the Harris County Precinct 6 Constable’s Office is being investigated for sexual assault, law officials confirmed Tuesday.
The allegations against the officer, who has not been identified, were turned over to the Harris County Sheriff ’s Office last month for investigation.
In an email Tuesday, a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that a criminal investigation is underway.
“On Oct. 29, the (sheriff’s office) opened an investigation into an alleged sexual assault in Galena Park,” wrote HCSO spokesman Jason Spencer in an email.
“Evidence gathered through that investigation is expected to be presented to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office for review later this week. No charges have been filed as of this time.”
The investigation comes only a few months after another Precinct 6 officer was charged with sexual assault. Brandin M. Glispy, a former deputy constable, is accused of assaulting at least one woman earlier this year, Houston police said at the time.
Police said in July that they believed there may be other victims.
On Jan. 6, police said Glispy, still wearing his police uniform, waited for a female in the bathroom of a local restaurant, where he allegedly attempted to assault her.
On April 24, Glispy allegedly used his Precinct 6 vehicle to conduct a traffic stop in the 5800 block of Martin Luther King Drive. Police said he then directed the female driver to a secluded parking lot and assaulted her.
Glispy was terminated from his position shortly after the second allegation.
