Sheriff’s Office: Jail officer accused of raping officer
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Bernalillo County authorities says a male Metropolitan Detention Center officer is accused of raping a female jail inmate.
The Sheriff’s Office says Officer Johnny Reveles (ray-VAY’-lace) was arrested on suspicion of criminal sexual penetration after the inmate said during a court appearance that Reveles raped her Monday while in the shower.
The office says the arrest was based on evidence from statements made by the victim and from evidence obtained from an interview with Reveles.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for Reveles who could comment on the allegations.
