Police Officer Cries As He’s Sentenced To Life For Rape | JCTV | THE JEENYUS CORNER


HOUSTON — An ex-Houston police officer broke down in tears after he was sentenced to life in prison Monday for raping a waitress in the back of his patrol car.

Abraham Joseph stood stunned when he heard the sentence. He stared at the jury as he tried to process what just happened to him, then began crying.

The former cop’s wife collapsed into the arms of another family member in the back of the courtroom.

The jury last week convicted Joseph of aggravated sexual assault by a public servant after a month-long trial.

During the sentencing phase, jurors heard from three other women who said Joseph also assaulted them and threatened to have them deported if they told anyone.

“I’m not surprised by the sentence in light of the accusations that came out in punishment,” said Defense Attorney Nicole DeBorde. “You know, obviously we’re disappointed in the verdict but the jurors have a very hard job to do. They listened carefully to the evidence and I have a lot of faith in our criminal justice system and I appreciate their hard work and their time.”

Joseph was fired in 2011 after he was indicted for the rape of a 38 year-old immigrant from El Salvador.
