The news is out: [A former police officer in Tennessee will spend the next two decades behind bars after he admitted to assaulting one woman and sexually assaulting three others between 2015 and 2018 while in uniform, according to federal prosecutors.
Desmond Logan, who previously worked for the Chattanooga Police Department, was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Wednesday — the maximum sentence allowed under the law, prosecutors said in a news release. The 35-year-old will also have to register as a sex offender.
“A long sentence will hopefully deter the defendant from ever committing such crimes again, but in the meantime, the longer the defendant is in custody, the longer the public will be safe from him,” prosecutors said in court filings.
Logan was charged in two separate incidents in 2016 and 2018, according to Wednesday’s news release.]
That’s what they do when they are not violating the people’s Constitutional rights.
