“An Austin police officer gave a sexual assault suspect he knew details about the victim, a memo says.
The officer was not assigned to the case.
Prosecutors ultimately decided not to pursue “the compromised sexual assault case,” the memo says.
An Austin police officer was indefinitely suspended Friday after he shared confidential information with a sexual assault suspect about his accuser, according to a disciplinary memo.
Officer Carlos Mayfield can appeal his suspension within 10 days. A criminal investigation into his actions is pending, the memo says.”
