Sex Battery Charges Recommended For Former Cop

Mount Dora, Fla. – Eyewitness News learned the Orange County Sheriff’s Office has recommended filing sexual battery charges against a former Mount Dora police officer accused of forcing a transvestite prostitute to perform a sex act inside his patrol car.

The State Attorney’s Office will make the final decision.

The charging affidavit paints a disturbing picture of what happened between a former police lieutenant and a transvestite prostitute in his patrol car. After more than a month investigating, the sheriff’s office said the case is ready for court

Former Mount Dora Lieutenant Roger Chilton has always denied the charges he demanded oral sex from a transvestite, but now they have taken on new weight.

“We knew there was more happening than what he was telling us and we got to the truth in the case,” said Sgt. Richard Mankewich, Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
