Cop Impersonator Pleads Guilty to Raping Woman
ANOKA, Minn. (AP) – A man faces up to 27 years in prison after pleading guilty to raping a woman in Fridley after telling her he was a police officer last November.
Thirty-six-year-old Gideon Charles Arrington pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Anoka County court Thursday.
Arrington had agreed to the plea bargain in lieu of a jury trial. His attorney says Arrington could receive a minimum sentence of 12 years.
According to the charges, Arrington abducted the woman near Fridley City Hall on Nov. 23 after telling her he was a detective. The charges say he then handcuffed and blindfolded her and raped her repeatedly.
