Tweet Be the first to Tweet this!.ShareThis .Prosecutors allege that 31-year-old Aravanh Lakmany of Dracut would approach the women, ask them to get into his cruiser or personal vehicle and drive them to an isolated area where they would engage in sexual conduct.

Prosecutors say in one instance Lakmany offered not to arrest a woman wanted on outstanding warrants in exchange for sexual favors.

Lakmany was arraigned Tuesday on charges of extortion, three counts of rape and three counts of solicitation of prostitutes.

A Middlesex Superior Court Clerk Magistrate released him on personal recognizance.

A woman who answered a phone at Lakmany's home declined to put him on the phone or comment.

It was not immediately clear if Lakmany has legal representation.

Didn't this officer state that he began to feel entitled to break the law? This seems to be an epidemic. We should make this an illness so they can go out on disability.

These poor officers have so much stress to deal with.

His word against hers. The judge will ask whats your occupation he will say "I'm a decorated officer." and what do you do mam? "I spread my legs and I smooch pickles for money to buy drugs.". Case dismissed.

"We" believe that all cops should be able to break the law. They can threaten and assault citizens as they feel that some deserve to be brutally beaten. They should be able to rape prostitutes as they feel that the woman is already selling sex so therefor why not allow our trusted police to rape them.
Wasn't it stated that this officer had stated to others that he felt that he was above the law and untouchable? Is this his defense?
So you can beat citizens close to death while off duty and drinking at a bar and then claim exempt from the law due to the sense of entitlement of the badge."I felt like he was going to chest bump me and I seen him tighten his arm so I assaulted him."
"I felt that she liked sex so I raped her".

"I am a cop, what are they going to mdo to me?"

The judge "officer do you have a history with your accuser?". officer "yes your honor I have arrested her several times in the past for possession and dealing narcotics and prostitution.". Hooker " See your honor he's stalking me, I'm not even that high right now I only smoked two rocks of crack." Case closed
