(WALA) – An early-morning incident by an off-duty Mobile police officer resulted in his dismissal and criminal charges, Interim Police Chief Roy Hodge said Monday. The fired officer, Jamorris Cage, 27, faces two counts of sexual extortion. “In my 38-year-career, I have never seen anything like this,” he said.
“However, he was in his police-issued uniform and operating his assigned vehicle when this incident occurred. ”Hodge said neither victim immediately reported the incident. “Most likely out of embarrassment or disbelief,” he said. Several days later, the chief said, one of the victims reported it to two other officers who were on call.
He said that during the officer’s roughly two years on the force, he had just one personnel infraction, a minor incident that did not result in time off. Prior to joining the force, Cage worked as a corrections deputy and Mobile County Metro Jail.
