Cop arrested over sex with woman involved in crime investigation

37 Comments

Police on Tuesday arrested a 51-year-old lieutenant for having a sexual relationship with a woman who he had interviewed during a crime investigation in Tochigi Prefecture.

Tomhiro Kamioka, 51, was arrested for allegedly having sex with the woman in her 30s twice in March. She reported the case to police on March 26, and investigators interviewed Kamioka several times before deciding to charge him.

According to police, Kamioka asked the woman to meet him in the car park of a supermarket in Ashikaga City at midnight and had sex with her in her car. Police say he abused his authority as an officer of the law.

Kamioka admits knowing the woman but denies having a sexual relationship with her, police said.

I see nothing wrong here. It's simply a 'boy meets girl' situation regardless of the circumstances.

You see nothing wrong here? She reported him to the police, so obviously she was not a willing partner.

I'm sure she consented, but she was put off by his behavior afterwards. Women are such vindictive creatures.

Dude, he propositioned her during an interview! Damn it, stop justifying the unjustifiable!

IF it WASN'T rape, (she was willing), then WHY did she report it afterwards?

If she DID say she WASN'T willing, why didn't they arrest him of suspected rape?

Or is coerced sex, for whatever reason, not considered rape?

Why didnt she report him BEFORE having sex with him?

I think how innocent or guilty he is really depends on a number of factors we do not know.

Was she interviewed as a suspect in a crime investigation? As a witness? As a victim of a crime?

Any of these scenerios may leave a person emotionally vulnerable. If she was a suspect, perhaps she thought meeting with him would get her off the suspect list, regardless of whether or not she was guilty in the first place. Every felt guilty and nervous around cops even though you have done nothing wrong? Maybe she just wanted that to end.

If she witnessed a murder or other violent crime, she may need counselling, and he took advantage of her in her shocked state. Same with the third. One of my friends caught a pervert in her house stealing her underwear. When the police came "to protect her" she became infatuated with the officer that helped her. With a few words he could have easily had his way with her, but he was thoroughly professional and kept his distance. Once she recovered from the shock of the break-in, she realised what she was feeling for him was not a rational emotion.

Police routinely deal with people in unstable emotional states. That is why it is important that they do not take advantage of those they are paid to serve - even if they do not instigate the flirting themselves.

Or perhaps she was just a vindictive woman, angered that he could not meet up with her for some more sex because his wife was getting suspicious...Who knows...

papa...You are right, there is a lot about this story that we do not know. But, since he is a J-guy, we can reasonably assume that it was a "mini" car.

if she`d agree to meet him at midnight in a car, then she more than likely she concented to sex as well... He abused his authority, sure, but why did she turn him in? There must be more to this story.

Why didnt she report him BEFORE having sex with him is because he is not good,not only he most jm r 99% not good at any so thts y many jf like gaijin,jf thy like any men who is not jm,

Maybe he didn't do it. He seems to have denied the allegation of doing her.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

He was charged with "having a sexual relationship" - not rape. Doesn't that me she was willing? AND, she went out - AT MIDNIGHT to meet him. Sounds like fair game to me!

...arrested for allegedly having sex with the woman in her 30s twice in March

This is an offense in itself, regardless of the man's job.

Why, is March Lent or something?

It doesn't have anything to do with Buddhism, Confucianism, white chapels for weddings or anything else borrowed from abroad and adopted and modified to create some fantasy of uniqueness.

Charge could be dropped to allegedly having sex with the woman in her 30s twice.

Woulda done it in the koban, but some chick was throwing rocks... ;)

If she had sex with him twice and never consented to it on both accounts, why didn't she report him after the first time? Something doesn't seem right with this...sounds like another case of wrongful accusation.

ys,sometimes they abuse the public rights for keeping a more publicity rights safe and better!and i wonder if news is true or not,Generally speaking,as far as we know,there are at least 2 person to gotta involved in crime investigation.and often they pretend to be a couple ever if they are not true!

Cop done complete investigation inside out!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

everyone is missing the point. he called to meet her under the pretext of interrogating her about crime. read the Japanese reports or have someone translate it. he was off duty at the time. he abused his position of responsibility to get sexual favors. lets look at this...

Cop: I can make this all go away if you.....or you are looking at 28 days with out a lwayer, your family shamed, etc, starting from now. woman: I understand. Cop: groaaan... this is great! woman: (all this fuss for such a tiny thing...I am gonna settle his hash)

Yeah, what Rom said. Scary how much we agree on lately.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I agree with most posters on this. There is not much detail here other than he asked her to meet him at midnight, she went, and they had sex in her car.

If a cop, investigation or not, asked me to meet him at midnight hell! if I'm going to go. The answer would have been "No, if you want to meet me it will have to be tomorrow morning at the police station or ask me questions by phone."

It is strange that she reported it given the way it is reported in this article. So, there must be more to it like "forced to have sex." And if he intimidated her and she complied that i would think that woudl fall under "rape."

It's really interesting how some of the posters here fill in the blanks. First of all, there is no allegation of rape. A few of you have agreed with that statement. There is no indication that the women was a suspect of a crime, just that she was being interviewed during a crime investigation. She could have just been a witness. Unless anyone has further information about this case you can't really assume she was a suspect.

It seems to me that the officer was arrested for having a sexual relationship with someone he interviewed which is a breach of his authority. Had it been anyone else, nothing would have been done since consensual sex between adults isn't a crime. There is no indication that the sex was forced and no information whether or not the woman was charging him. It just says that she reported the case.

I believe Romulus stated it best as to not pee in your own living room.

Final assessment; the cop's an idiot.

Meet me the cop in a parking lot at midnight. Think I'm gonna interrogate you in a proper manner? I say he took advantage of his position and should take a pay cut and loss of position and sh!ty posting but I don't see it as a crime. She should have exercised common sense, something not big in this country, and questioned the meeting at that time in that place. This tells me she sort of consented in a way so she'll have to take half the blame as well.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Well, what throws it off is that she reported it and the statements are vague and to any normal preson do not make sense. My comments were all "if's" not based on any revelations. Perhaps without her "reporting it" it woudl be just as you say and no one would speculate.

This is like that movie with Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone.

In the end off the day the cop abused his authority to coerce a suspect to have sex with him. That is a form of rape. Imagine if you were at college and were summoned to your professors office were he says he suspects you of cheating on the test, true or not, and then asks you to meet him somewhere private. You may go voluntarily and may have sex without him physically forcing you but you almost certainly would not have if it was not for the threat of expulsion. Now turn the professor into a cop and the test into some crime and the expulsion into an arrest that could be even more humiliating or in the case of her being a witness to crime that could put her in danger of retaliation. Bushlover's comment is an all too common example of blaming the victim.

Rigs83's comment is an all too common example of judging before knowing the full story painting us a picture that has yet to be proven.

He did not kill her. He did not commit suicide with her. He did not steal her car. He did not rob her of her possesions. Obviously, there was allotting of pressure with the job. Moreover, I bet, even at thirty, she is very pretty.

I just have the feeling that something is wrong with this article. I still need more information to be able to understand. Why didn't she report this after the first time? Why did she wait for the second time before reporting? I can't just understand she was sexually abused two times by the same person. I think that the second time shouldn't have happend without her consent.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

He's "innocent" I tell you!! They weren't having sex in that car at night... alone ... in the dark. He was just trying to.... um.... well you know- investigate her! Even thou he could have done it inside the office.... with other people around.... and with some light that way he would have been able to write down whatever she had to say, LOL =D!

All in All- Since she didn't say anything the first time and he denies it... Just call it square and put it to rest. But I can't imagine how sex with some old, gray, wrinkly dude could have been fun!
