Plainfield Police Officer Accused Of On-Duty Sex Offense

PLAINFIELD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A 41-year-old Plainfield police sergeant is accused of assaulting a woman while he was on duty last summer.

Samuel Woody, a 12-year veteran of the force, was arrested Tuesday night and charged with criminal sexual contact, Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow said.

Investigators said Woody was on duty and in uniform when the alleged assault occurred on July 24, 2011.

The incident was reported to authorities three weeks ago, Romankow said.

Woody was released from custody after posting bail.

He has been suspended from the force.

    This guy has been on the force for 12 years. He has no complaints in his file. He try to make a positive difference here in the community. He and his family are church going people. They attend church just at Church Of the Lord Jesus on Union St. Newark.
    I think he’s innocent of this.

      Bet he did it and she wasn’t the only one. Cops and criminals are made from the same rag…

    Lets think about it people; who would wait 6 months to filed a ccomplaint that your rights was violated or threaten? I think this is another case of NYPD Commisoner Ray Kelly’s son Gray Kelly experenice. A made up story/ A lied.
