Civil suit filed against former BRPD officers
BATON ROUGE - An attorney filed a civil lawsuit Tuesday against three former Baton Rouge Police officers accused of sexually abusing a woman while on duty.
Emerson Jackson, Travis Wheeler, and Isaac Bolden were named in the suit. They were indicted by a grand jury in November on charges of malfeasance in office for the incident at a city park last year. The suit also names the Baton Rouge Police Department and the city of Baton Rouge.
The three were accused of coercing a woman to give oral sex to Bolden while they were on duty. Bolden later resigned while Wheeler and Jackson were fired.
The civil suit was filed by the victim's attorney, Carl Babin, who said he could not comment about the case because the suit was filed under seal.
