A Florida cop won't face criminal charges for allegedly forcing a woman to perform oral sex on him while they were in his squad car last year, prosecutors said.
Orlando Police Detective Angel Burgos was accused of committing the lurid act while on duty inside his unmarked police vehicle in December, according to a Department of Law Enforcement investigation.
But while prosecutors acknowledged that there is "sufficient evidence" proving that the sexual act took place, Chief Assistant State Attorney Deborah Barra wrote in a Tuesday letter to Orlando Police Chief John Mina that there's no concrete proof the act was "coerced or forced."
Therefore, Barra noted, the State Attorney's office will not be pressing charges.
In an interview with BuzzFeed News, the alleged victim said Burgos arrived at her home on Dec. 15 around 9 a.m. and asked her to join him in his car. The woman had apparently gotten to know Burgos from a previous case she had been involved in.
"He was an officer, I didn't think much of it, I trusted him," the woman, speaking on condition of anonymity, told BuzzFeed.
The woman said she held a casual conversation with Burgos until he suddenly unzipped his pants, exposed his penis and began kissing her.
Burgos kept asking her to touch his penis and "jerk him off," but she refused.
When she finally tried to get out of the car, the woman said Burgos grabbed her by the neck and pressed her head against his crotch.
When she again tried to get away, Burgos allegedly told her to "live in the moment."
The same sequence repeated itself a couple of times until the woman gave in and performed oral sex on Burgos for about 30 seconds, she claimed.
Burgos subsequently masturbated and ejaculated onto a towel he kept in the center console, and the woman left the car.
She alerted the Orlando Police Department's internal affairs unit about a week later, and an investigation was subsequently launched.
"I was still very upset," the woman said. "This was all still very fresh — it was just a week later. I was scared, hurt and confused."
Burgos, an 18-year department veteran, has been stripped of his badge and remains on modified duty pending an internal investigation.
The department is still trying to figure out whether he violated any policies by allegedly inviting the woman to join him in his squad car while on duty.
