Gainsville Florida Police Officer John Robert Bostick Quits Amid Investigation, Sexual Battery Accusation, Leaking Information, And A Laundry List Of Other Allegations
July 1st, 2008

GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA - A Gainesville Police Department internal investigation found that a former officer violated GPD policies by sharing confidential police information with a woman he was having sex with.

In addition, the State Attorney’s Office is looking into the woman’s accusation that the officer committed sexual battery on her.

Bostick was found in violation of the following Gainesville Police Department policies:

*“Immoral, unlawful, or improper conduct or indecency, whether on or off the job, which would tend to affect the employee’s relationship to his/her job, fellow workers’ reputations or goodwill in the community.”This includes violation of these GPD general orders:

o Conduct unbecoming
o Criminal conduct
o Association with known offenders / person of questionable reputation
o Investigative information
*“Productivity or workmanship not up to required standard of performance.”This includes violation of these GPD general orders:
o Department-owned property
o In-car audio/Video system procedures
o Property and evidence control

* Bostick failed to turn in certain department items, such as a clip-on GPD ID and removable laptop floppy drive after his resignation with GPD. GPD also found evidence items in his assigned patrol vehicle that he had failed to turn in as evidence. He also failed to set the correct date for his in-car videotapes, according to the GPD Internal Affairs report.

John Robert Bostick voluntarily resigned May 9 from GPD while the investigation was ongoing.

On May 8, GPD received a complaint alleging that Bostick committed sexual battery on a woman with an extensive criminal history, according to a GPD Internal Affairs report dated June 18.

The woman recorded the sexual battery on her video recorder and had numerous voicemail messages from Bostick on her cell phone, the report stated.

The only audible phone message that was recovered by GPD’s Computer Forensics Unit was of Bostick saying,“All right, girl. That’s the last straw there. I am declaring war, and that will be it. It’s JB. Later.”

The complaint also alleged that Bostick provided confidential information to the woman regarding ongoing criminal investigations, the report stated.

The woman refused to have sex with Bostick until he agreed to “look the other way” if he observed any illegal activity involving the woman and another person, according to the report.

Because the alleged sexual battery occurred outside of GPD’s jurisdiction, the Criminal Investigations Division of the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office was notified, according to the report.

It has the same principle as the Ken Johnson case in Moffat County, Colorado. Johnson was charged with selling (or sharing) information to a woman and he had an affair with a woman.
