Brickbat: St. Louis Blues


Two St. Louis police officers have been charged with sexually assaulting four women, including a civilian police department employee. Lafeal Lawshea has been charged with two counts of forcible rape, forcible sodomy, sexual misconduct and tampering with a victim. Torey Phelps is facing charges of forcible rape and intercourse with an incapacitated woman. A third officer, Sgt. Jatonya Clayborn-Muldrow, has been charged with tampering with a witness in the case. Prosecutors say she attempted to dissuade one woman from reporting an assault by Lawshea and tried to find out who was handling the internal affairs investigation.
