LAPD officer arrested on accusations of attempted rape
An off-duty LAPD officer was arrested Sunday December 7, 2008 in connection with an alleged attempted rape in Los Angeles. The incident allegedly occurred after a Los Angeles Police Department-sanctioned holiday party at a hotel near Los Angeles International Airport.
Officer Eduardo Bermudez, a 29-year-old member of the Pacific Area Patrol Division, was off duty during the time of the incident and was arrested by LAPD Internal Affairs detectives and books in LA County Jail on the attempted rap charge. He is currently being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
An experienced Los Angeles sex offense defense attorney in a case like this is essential. Bermudez is facing an extremely serious attempted rape charge that could result in potential prison time if found guilty. Not only would he serve time, but Bermudez’s reputation as an officer of the law and as a citizen would be tarnished. For these reasons and more, it’s very important for people being charged with such serious criminal charges so retain the services of a qualified and experienced criminal defense attorney.
