DENVER – A former Englewood police officer received a 30-day jail sentence last week after she pleaded guilty in January to a count of sexual contact without consent for an incident that happened in March 2019.
Anna McCain, 24, will have to serve five years of sex offender supervised probation in addition to the jail time, the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office said.
The victim in the case and McCain had previously had a brief relationship weeks before the sexual contact, according to an affidavit.
But on the night of March 14, the two and several other friends went out to dinner and a club, and afterward went back to the victim’s Highlands Ranch home. After others had left, according to police and prosecutors, McCain made multiple attempts to initiate sexual contact, including groping and trying to kiss the woman, according to police.
The victim told McCain no several times, she told police, and eventually got McCain to leave. Weeks later, she said she realized that the incident amounted to assault and told a colleague, after which the Englewood Police Department notified the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office to investigate.
McCain was later fired by the department.
“No agency wants to protect officers who violate our laws. I commend the Englewood Police Department for alerting the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office to a possible crime committed by one of their own officers,” 18th District Attorney George Brauchler said in a statement.
