FORT WAYNE, Ind. - A Fort Wayne police officer has pleaded guilty to raping a woman who prosecutors say he had arrested for drunken driving.
Forty-six-year-old Mark Rogers pleaded guilty to one count each of rape, sexual misconduct and official misconduct charges during an Allen County court hearing Thursday. The Journal Gazette and WANE-TV report that prosecutors are dropping another count of rape and a false informing charge.
The rape charge to which Rogers pleaded guilty states that the woman was so mentally disabled she was unable to consent to sex.
Authorities said Rogers stopped the woman in September 2013 and took her to a hospital for treatment of a high intoxication level. Prosecutors say Rogers took her to a city park after she was released and had sex with her.
