HOUSTON – He’s being called a rapist in blue: A Houston Police officer could be going to prison for a very long time.
It was last year when 26-year-old Demetrie Dixon was arrested for sexually assaulting at least 2 prostitutes near West 34th Street in northwest Houston.
Dixon, a 2-year veteran of the Houston Police Department, used his authority to detain and sexually assault the hookers, investigators said.
Friday morning, a Harris County jury returned a guilty verdict on 2 counts of Sexual Assault against the rookie cop.
Prosecutors paraded a string of street walkers into the court to tell how they were victimized by Dixon.
One woman, who we’re not identifying, told jurors in the punishment phase, “I know I’m a prostitute but I didn’t deserve that.”
That woman said Dixon forced her to strip nude and told her to spread.
Another woman, who said she no longer works the streets, testified, “I was forced to perform oral sex on him. I didn’t ask for this. He did this to me.”
Dixon’s attorney said they could not comment until after sentencing which is likely to take place Monday.
Dixon faces 2 to 20 years for the convictions.
