sex with police officer

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Virginia

I recently returned from Iraq and I was looking at my wife cell phone record. She has been talking to a Fort Lee Petersburg police officer while he was on and off duty. After asking her to take a test to find out if it was just conversations as friends, she came clean and told me she had sex with him one time. I spoke to the officer and asked him to please tell me what really happened and he told me the same story. I want to know if this police officer can lose his job for his actions, because he was messing with a military spouse. Because he is interested to patrol and help protect the post, not commit adultery with a woman while the husband is fighting in Iraq.

Answer

He likely would be dismissed if you report it.
