Police officer’s conviction upheld

In a unanimous decision, the Missouri Court of Appeals has upheld the 2014 conviction of a suspended Kansas City Police Department officer for the crime of acceding to corruption, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

“Today’s ruling further shows that no one is above the law,” said Baker, whose office prosecuted the case that went to trial in 2014.

The court ruling issued Tuesday stated, “Simply put, the evidence presented at trial was clearly sufficient to establish that Holmes both solicited and knowingly accepted sex from C.C. in exchange for his official discretion to not arrest her for prostitution.”

Evidence presented at trial was clearly sufficient to establish that Holmes both solicited and knowingly accepted sex in exchange for his official discretion to not arrest her for prostitution, the ruling further stated. “The State met its burden of proving that Holmes committed the crime of acceding to corruption beyond a reasonable doubt whether his offense is viewed as “soliciting” or “knowingly accepting” sexual benefits from C.C,” the ruling stated.

The order is attached.
