A veteran Kansas City police officer who was accused of forcing two women to have sex with him was found guilty of acceding to corruption Friday.

The Jackson County Prosecutor's Office said a jury found Jeffrey Holmes guilty of a single count of acceding to corruption and sentenced him to 15 days in jail and a fine.

Back in 2012 a prostitute told police in mid-April that Holmes raped her March 24 at an Extended Stay America near East 105th Street and Holmes Road. Court documents say Holmes showed up at her location wearing a uniform and told the woman that she was "busted for prostitution," and attempted to handcuff her. The first woman told police Holmes gave her the impression he wanted to have sex for free and, when she refused, he forced her to.

On May 20, a second woman contacted off-duty officers at the A-1 Motel at 6701 E. 87th St. to say that Holmes had raped her a month earlier. She said Holmes accused her of being a prostitute, which she denied. Police did find an online listing for her. Court documents said Holmes threatened to have the second woman arrested if she did not have sex with him, according to court documents.

After Holmes was arrested and charged in 2012, he began not showing up for work and was suspended from the force.

According to prosecutors, Holmes committed the public corruptions felonies when he used his position as an officer to force the women to have sex in exchange for him not raising them. He was not charged with assaulting the women.
