Prince George's county police chief says department is still investigating alleged sex scandal

The Prince George's county police chief is speaking out on Thursday - one day after FOX 5 reported on a sex scandal involving police and a transgender prostitute in D.C.

A Prince George's county officer - and also a D.C. officer - are currently under investigation for allegations of misconduct.

The alleged incidents would have occurred in the District - but Prince George's county is conducting its own internal investigation into an officer.

"I have no information as of today that this individual used their office as a police officer in order to elicit this behavior my understanding is that it was a mutually consensual relationship between these two people-beyond that it is still under investigation if those facts change I will come back and I will tell you," said Prince George's county police chief Henry Stawinski.

Stawinski says investigators are looking into an allegation that the officer was in a marked cruiser - but in plainclothes and off duty when he allegedly solicited the sex.

The transgender woman making the claim provided FOX 5 with video showing the cruiser, and her speaking with the officer.

The chief says his Internal Affairs Division learned about the allegation last Saturday, and met with the transgender woman and her lawyer in Baltimore.

The woman is also alleging criminal wrongdoing on the part of a D.C. Police Lieutenant. Multiple sources confirmed for FOX 5 that the photo - which shows and officer in a D.C. Police polo, naked from the waist down - is the officer in question.

Because he has not been charged, FOX 5 is not identifying him.

D.C. police say the lieutenant has been taken off the street, and is in a non-contact status.

FOX 5's Marina Marraco talked to the woman in a phone interview on Wednesday night. She asked whether or not the encounter was consensual.

The accuser replied, "No, it was more like a coercion, threats of cheaper prices, threats of arrest."

Stawinski believes he has the public's trust to investigate what happened, and to lay out the facts for them.

"The public knows by what they have seen me do--not talk about but do--for the last several years is that I am going to bring facts to them--sometimes those facts are good and reflect well on this institution--sometimes they aren't," he said.
