A Chicago police officer has been arrested on charges he "made inappropriate physical contact" with three women while on duty, on three different occassions between August 2017 and July 2018.
According to Cook County Prosecutor, Officer Corey Deanes, 47, approached the women while they were alone at night and made inappropriate comments on their looks. He also touched them inappropriately and asked for their phone numbers. This behavior was while the Officer was on patrol in a marked police car in the Lincoln Park and Lakeview communities.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr. set bond at $200,000, calling the officer’s actions “extremely scary and troubling.”
“We always forget the psychological effect this has on people,” Lyke said. “You have the ability to stop somebody at night, and they’re totally alone.”
Deanes is a veteran of nearly 14 years with the department.
