Police Employee Faces Sexual Assault Charges

ST. LOUIS (AP) – A civilian employee of the St. Louis Police Department is facing charges for allegedly impersonating an officer and sexually assaulting a male victim.

Authorities say 28-year-old Michael Cornell sexually touched the man last year, then went to the hotel where the man worked and asked for his personnel records while claiming to be a police officer.

Cornell was indicted Wednesday on four counts of deviate sexual assault and one count of third-degree assault. He was previously charged with felony sodomy related to the same alleged victim. He is jailed on $150,000 bond.

Cornell is suspended without pay from his job in the prisoner processing section of the police department.
