Police officer Jesse Andrew Green, 33, of Huntington Beach, has been charged with two felony counts of forcible sodomy for assaulting two women on two separate occasions. Green had previously dated both women. He sexually assaulted one of them back in April of 2006 and the other in November of 2009. Green was on unpaid administrative leave after the second assault was reported, and was arrested on Tuesday morning. According to the spokesman for Garden Grove police, Green was off-duty when the assaults allegedly occurred. Green is facing a maximum of 16 years in prison if convicted, prosecutors plan on requesting $250,000 bail in court Wednesday.
In the United States, the term sodomy means oral sex as well as anal sex. The crime of sodomy is classified as a felony. Penal Code 286 PC, California's sodomy law, punishes "unlawful acts of sodomy." Forcing someone to have sodomy against his/her will, or acts of sodomy involving minor children are punishable by law.
