    SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A former San Antonio police officer has pleaded guilty to charges of official oppression and violating the civil rights of someone in custody after being accused of forcing a woman into sex in exchange for release.

    The Bexar County District Attorney's Office said Gregory Mickel pleaded guilty Wednesday and could face up to a year in jail on each count. He was fired after authorities investigated the woman's claims.

    She alleged she was arrested after the 31-year-old officer saw her picked up in an area known for prostitution. She said she was released in exchange for sexual favors and reported the incident several days later.

    Mickel maintained the sexual encounter was consensual.

    That's it? A year in jail on each count?

    Shouldn't this kind of thing be a capital crime? I mean, really... is there anything much worse than a government official who uses the authority we vested in him to rape a woman?

    After his conviction, he should have been taken out behind the courthouse and shot. Disgusting abuse of authority.

    +1 I guess if you wear a badge rape becomes a Class "A" misdemeanor.
