BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A Birmingham police officer is charged with sexual abuse in a case that began with a complaint about misconduct while on duty.
News outlets report that 25-year-old Devin Carlisle was arrested Monday, a little more than three years after he was hired.
Carlisle is charged with sexual abuse by force. Court records aren't available to show whether he has a lawyer to speak on his behalf.
Carlisle was placed on administrative duty after officials received a complaint about allegations of misconduct in January.
He is being held in the Jefferson County Jail with bail set at $15,000.
