Precinct 6 con­sta­ble’s of­fi­cer faces sex as­sault al­le­ga­tion

Houston Chronicle - - CITY | STATE - By Robert Dow­nen robert.dow­

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.
