Spring Hill Police Officer Pleads Guilty to Sex Crime While on Duty

Former Spring Hill police officer Christopher Odom pleaded guilty to a criminal civil rights violation in federal court Tuesday.

Odom, 27, was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 26 for engaging in unwanted sexual contact while on duty as a police officer.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara E. Myers read aloud the evidence against Odom, which he admitted to during the hearing.

On or about the night of June 25, 2016, Odom pulled over a woman as she was leaving a restaurant at The Crossing of Spring Hill shopping center in Maury County. The victim was driving a friend, who was riding in the passenger seat.

Odom initiated a traffic stop and pulled the victim over, then told the victim he stopped her because her tag light was out and asked for her driver’s license.

The victim told Odom her license was suspended and she didn’t have one. Odom admitted he told the victim to write down her name, birthday and phone number, then went back to his patrol car and returned a short time later.

“When Mr. Odom returned, he asked the victim to get out of the car. Odom led her back to his patrol car, out of view of the car’s camera,” Myers said.

Odom admitted he then told the victim how sexy she was and tried to kiss her. The victim stopped him, then noticed he wasn’t wearing a name badge. When she asked his name, Odom gave a different name.

When Odom tried to kiss the victim again, she stopped him again, noting that people were driving by and her friend, still in the passenger seat of her car, could see them. Odom claimed his flashing lights would block her view.
