Justin McCall, 30, was arraigned in San Francisco Superior Court on charges of sexual penetration of an unconscious person, as well as sexual penetration by a foreign object of a drugged person.
McCall’s attorney, Mike Hinckley, told Judge Bruce Chan that his client denies “any and all allegations.” McCall, wearing a dark blue suit in court, also signed a restraining order requiring that he stay away from the alleged victim.
Though known details of the crime are currently few, charging documents show that McCall was off duty at the time of the incident.
He committed the assault when the victim “was prevented from resisting by an intoxicating and anesthetic substances and a controlled substance,” according to the court papers filed by the district attorney’s office.
McCall was a four-year veteran of the San Francisco Police Department and known for his community outreach.
“Certainly, if these allegations are in fact true, the standard of conduct that we’re discussing here falls well below that which we would expect of a San Francisco police officer,” said Max Szabo, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office.
