IMPD officer faces sexual misconduct charges

February 3, 2010

An Indianapolis police officer appeared in court Wednesday morning, charged with sexual misconduct, criminal confinement, intimidation, official misconduct and obstruction of justice. A 26-year-old woman said she was attacked in an industrial area near 10th and Rural streets by Courtney Harris, who had threatened to throw her in jail unless she performed a sex act. At first, Harris denied everything, but later said he had consensual off-duty sex with the woman.
