San Antonio,  Texas - On Saturday, 11-year veteran San Antonio Police Officer Jackie Len Neal, 40, was charged with one felony count for sexual assault of a 19-year-old woman on early Friday. The criminal complaint affidavit states, that Officer Neal stopped the woman for allegedly driving a stolen vehicle. He made her exit the vehicle and handcuffed her. He then proceeded to search the woman, but she requested for a female officer to search her. Neal denied her request and grabbed her breasts over her shirt. He then place her in his squad car and forced the woman to have unconsensual sex with him.
Neal remained at the scene with the victim for 18-minutes, according to a GPS police review of the vehicle.
Afterwards, the woman called 911 and claimed she was assaulted by a woman. When an officer responded to the call, she told the officer that she had lied and that an officer wearing a badge with the name Neal had raped her during a traffic stop.
The San Antonio Police Department confirmed that the video surveillance camera in the squad car was not functioning at the time of the alleged sexual assault. 
When Neal was taken into custody on Saturday, he was looking for the victim, according to the complaint. A $20,000 bail bond was set for Neal and released. 
Neal has been placed on paid administrative leave until the outcome of the case.
