Chattanooga police officer charged with rape www.privateofficer.com
Chattanooga Police Department Major Crimes has charged Chattanooga Police Officer Chad E. Bradley, 35, with:
• Aggravated Statutory Rape TCA
• Statutory Rape by an Authority Figure
• Tampering with Evidence
Chattanooga investigators and Meigs County Sheriff’s investigators located the 17-year-old victim Friday and interviewed her and confirmed several consensual sexual encounters, two of which were while Officer Bradley was on duty. Their relationship started in July 2009. The victim stated consensual sex occurred as recently as four days ago in Meigs County.
Police say the charges filed Friday are from a consensual sexual encounter that occurred in August 2009 at a Fire Police Outing Club Property.
The investigation is still ongoing as incidents have occurred in two Tennessee counties (Meigs and Hamilton) and possibly three law enforcement jurisdictions.
Police say additional charges may be pending once law enforcement jurisdictions have been verified on the other incidents.
