Colville cop pleads guilty to having sex on duty

The Associated Press

COLVILLE, Stevens County — A Colville police officer who had sex while on duty with several women has pleaded guilty to multiple crimes.

The state Attorney General’s Office says 45-year-old Rex Newport pleaded guilty Tuesday to five criminal counts, including unlawful imprisonment and sexual misconduct.

The attorney general’s office says Newport faces a sentence of between 22 and 29 months when he is sentenced in April.

According to court documents, Newport last March showed up at a Colville woman’s apartment, handcuffed her and had sex without her consent. Documents say two other women told investigators that Newport had pulled them over on suspicion of driving while drunk, then had sex with them in secluded areas.
