A former Englewood police officer will spend 30 days in jail after pleading guilty to sexual contact without consent in a Highlands Ranch incident, the office of 18th District Attorney George Brauchler announced.
Anna McCain, 24, was sentenced for the class 1 misdemeanor June 9. She will also serve five years of intensive supervised probation for sexual offenders, according to a news release from the district attorney’s office. Other counts against her were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
The incident began when on March 14, 2019, a woman and several friends from the Englewood Police Department, including McCain, went to dinner and a club together, according to the release.
“Afterward, they went back to her home in Highlands Ranch,” according to the release.
After the other friends left, McCain repeatedly attempted to initiate sexual contact with the woman, who said no and “tried to fight her off,” according to the release. But McCain groped and kissed the victim, according to the release.
Several weeks later, the woman recognized that the behavior was an assault and she confided in a colleague.
McCain has since been fired from EPD, according to the release.
“Anyone who vows to uphold the law must be held to the same law,” Brauchler said in the release. “This makes at least 37 law enforcement officers our office has prosecuted since I was elected.”
