Former Caledonia, NY Police Sgt. David Witherspoon
By Davy V.
In 2004, Caledonia, NY Police Sgt. David Witherspoon slipped Ambien into an 18-year old girl's drink, drugging her.
Sgt. Witherspoon then raped the young girl.
"He made his victim physically helpless by drugging her," Livingston County, NY District Attorney Gregory McCaffrey said.
"Basically impairing her drink and then having sex with her."
Witherspoon was convicted in 2006.
Now,after having spent 8 years behind bars, former Caledonia Police Sgt. David Witherspoon is set to be released next month from State prison.
Witherspoon will be registered as a level 2 sex offender, which according to the New York State sex offender registry, is described as a medium risk to re-offend.
But Livingston County District Attirney Gregory McCaffrey says that's not good enough.
McCaffrey wants this former dirty rapist cop to be registered as a level 3 sex offender, the highest risk to re-offend,
"We just think he's a potential danger to the community and I think he should be marked as a level three, as a high risk to potentially re-offend, given the nature of his crime back in 2004."
"He made his victim physically helpless by drugging her," McCaffrey said, adding "Basically impairing her drink and then having sex with her."
As it turns out, former Caledonia Police Sgt. David Witherspoon may have raped more innocent victims.
During Sgt. Witherspoon's trial, the Livingston County District Attorney's officer received information that Sgt. Witherspoon sexually assaulted another woman.
That woman however, was so intimidated by a fear of retaliation, that she refused to cooperate.
Witherspoon is expected to return to Caledonia after his release from prison.
