Suffolk County Police Officer Christopher McCoy Sexually Assaulted Woman In Custody Twice

SAYVILLE, NY — A Suffolk County Police officer has been arrested and charged with forcing a woman under arrest to perform oral sex twice in the precinct, federal prosecutors said.

Christopher McCoy, 38, of Sayville was charged with “depriving an arrestee of the right to bodily integrity by forcing her to perform a sexual act in the precinct,” according to a civil rights complaint filed with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, which was unsealed Thursday in federal court in Central Islip.

McCoy was arrested Thursday morning and was scheduled to appear Thursday afternoon before United States Magistrate Judge Anne Y. Shields. The charge was announced by Bridget M. Rohde, acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and William F. Sweeney, Jr., assistant director-in-charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, New York Field Office, according to a release from the N.Y. State Department of Justice.

“Law enforcement officials are duty-bound to uphold the Constitution and protect all of our citizens, and certainly not to abuse them,” Rohde said. “No dereliction of this duty will be tolerated.”

Rohde thanked the Suffolk County Police Department for its assistance during the investigation.

“While in custody, this woman didn’t deserve to be allegedly abused and degraded by a sworn public servant,” Sweeney added. “Police officers are held to a high standard, as they should be, and they certainly don’t have the authority to disrespect any human being. This type of conduct threatens the reputation of the vast majority of law enforcement officials who serve each day with honor and integrity.”

According to the complaint, on March 16, 2017, while on duty, McCoy arrested Jane Doe1 — a pseudonym — who allegedly had several outstanding warrants in connection with unresolved vehicle and traffic offenses.
