FAIRMOUNT HEIGHTS, Md. (KCPQ) -- A former Maryland police officer was indicted Tuesday on 11 charges, including rape and attempting to infect a woman with HIV.
Martique Vanderpool, a 30-year-old who police say is HIV-positive, is accused of raping a woman after a traffic stop when he was an officer of the Fairmount Heights Police, according to the Prince George’s County Police Department.
Vanderpool took the woman to the police station and “demanded the victim engage in a sex act or be arrested. The victim complied,” according to police.
Afterward, Vanderpool issued the woman some traffic tickets and drove her to her car in the impound lot, where she retrieved her car, police said.
The indictments against Vanderpool Tuesday included first- and second-degree rape, having sex with a person in custody, attempting to transfer HIV and misconduct in office, according to the court document. Vanderpool resigned from the Fairmount Heights Police Department in November.
