SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP)
A former Garden Grove police officer who sodomized three women he dated has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.
City News Service says 36-year-old Jesse Green was sentenced Friday in Orange County. He was convicted of three forcible sodomy charges in September.
Prosecutors say the Huntington Beach man assaulted the women between 2006 and 2009. He met two victims online and a third through friends.
Authorities say two women had consensual sex with Green but he also forced them to commit sex acts while insulting them and saying he was giving them a sexually transmitted disease.
One woman told the judge that Green was a “Jekyll and Hyde” who turned into a monster.
At trial, Green denied sexually assaulting the women, saying he understood that “no means no.”
