Prosecutors have accused a Louisiana law enforcement officer of raping a woman in her home several years before he was charged with murder in a 6-year-old boy’s shooting.
Norris Greenhouse Jr. hasn’t been charged with rape. His attorney says the allegation is “completely bogus.”
The rape allegation is detailed in a May 31 court filing that is part of the murder case. It also accuses Greenhouse of entering another woman’s home uninvited and making sexual advances while wearing a police uniform.
The filing says Greenhouse targeted five vulnerable women or teenage girls in a pattern of abusing his badge to “satisfy his sexual desires.”
Greenhouse awaits trial in the 2015 shooting that killed Jeremy Mardis and critically wounded his father following a car chase. A second officer was convicted of manslaughter in March.
The Avoyelles Parish Sheriff's Office fired Norris Greenhouse Jr. after the mother of a 14-year-old girl complained in 2012 that she found him lying on a sofa with her daughter while he was dressed in his sheriff's office uniform, prosecutors said in Friday's filing.
Greenhouse "has established a pattern of approaching women or teenage girls while 'on the clock' as a law enforcement officer and using the means at his disposal due to said employment to solicit those victims in an effort to satisfy his sexual desires," Assistant Attorney General Matthew Derbes wrote in April.
