Last week, C-Notes reported on the trials and tribulations of Elyria Patrolman Michael Tanner, who was fighting the good fight in arbitration to win his job back, after being caught on the clock drinking and playing Twister with a can of whipped cream. Our official ruling: This dude totally kicks ass!
Yet now another officer has fallen
-- or, in the case of Lorain Patrolman Stanley Marrero, risen -- in the line of duty. The Lorain County Prosecutor charged Marrero last week with a litany of felony counts, including theft in office, menacing by stalking, intimidation of a crime victim, public indecency, and dereliction of duty. OK, so maybe the officer’s not so much of a gentleman. But somewhere in that list are charges that Marrero had sex with two sisters while on duty. We’re no lawyers, but this seems like an official case of playa-hatin.’
Marrero’s troubles all started when the mother of a 20-year-old woman claimed the 43-year-old cop raped her daughter while he was on duty. When cops asked the daughter what happened, however, she said the sex was consensual. Then the girl’s sister came forward, telling police that she too had had sex with the cop. [Dirty Harry, you are officially a pussy!]
And that’s just one day on Marrero’s social calendar. He’s also accused of standing by and watching two other women get into a fistfight over him. And his personnel record reads like the back-sleeve of Sergeant Ben Dover
. In December 1999, he received a 3-day suspension for having sex with a woman who had called police threatening to kill herself.
Now it seems Marrero might officially be going into retirement. He's facing 13 years in prison if convicted of all the charges against him. Why do we suspect that Captain Happy will somehow make the best of prison? -- Jared Klaus
