SPOKANE — A Spokane County Superior Court jury has convicted a Spokane police sergeant of sexually assaulting another police officer.
The jury on Wednesday found Sgt. Gordon Ennis guilty of second-degree rape.
The Spokesman-Review says the jury deliberated for only two hours before arriving at a verdict.
Ennis, who was placed on extended leave from the department following his arrest in 2015, is accused of sexually assaulting a fellow police officer on Oct. 25, 2015, at a party. His trial began Feb. 26 and has featured testimony from over a dozen witnesses.
