Spokane Police Officer accused of rape

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - A 9-year-veteran of the Spokane Police Department has been placed on administrative leave after being accused of rape last week.

The WSP was asked to investigate because it was originally unclear whether the officer was with the Spokane Police Department or Spokane County Sheriff's Department.

The officer, who's identity has not been released due to the ongoing WSP investigation, will remain on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
