MILWAUKEE (AP) — A fired Milwaukee police officer has pleaded not guilty to federal charges alleging he sexually assaulted a woman while he was on duty.
Ladmarald Cates is accused of sexually assaulting the woman after he responded to her 911 call in July 2010.
The indictment accuses Cates of two felonies: violating the woman’s civil rights and using a firearm during a violent crime.
The Journal Sentinel reports U.S. Magistrate Judge William Callahan on Friday allowed Cates to remain free on his own recognizance pending trial. A trial date has not yet been set.
Callahan also ordered Cates not to have any contact with the woman or any of the witnesses in the case.
