KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City police officer has been charged with corruption after prosecutors accused him of having sex with two women in exchange for not arresting them.
One woman told police she was working as a prostitute, and the other said she had outstanding warrants and marijuana in her motel room when she met Jeffrey Holmes. Prosecutors say Holmes, 47, accepted sex from the women in return for not arresting them during alleged incidents in March and April.
A judge entered a not guilty plea on Holmes’ behalf during his arraignment Tuesday and released him on $75,000 bond. Holmes’ lawyer, Kevin Regan, didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
