ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Former Anchorage police officer Anthony Rollins was convicted of 18 out of 20 counts of sexual assault and misconduct Tuesday.
Rollins was found innocent on one count of sexual assault and one count of official misconduct pretaining to one of the six victims.
"We've all been disappointed with Anthony's conduct as a police officer. He hurt the victims, he hurt our community and he hurt every police officer in the Anchorage Police Department and we're disgusted by his behavior,” said APD Sgt. Derek Sheih, president of the APD Employee Association.
The jury had been deliberating since last Monday.
"This jury obviously had a very tough job to do to sift through this. They sat through almost three weeks of testimony from all different sources. We gave them a lot of evidence to sift through. I think that they did a great job. I'm very pleased for the verdict and I'm very, very happy for the victims,” said Deputy District Attorney Sharon Marshall.
