FULTON COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPUTY INDICTED IN SEXUAL BATTERY CASE
Female Victims Fondled in Courthouse Offices
Atlanta– A Fulton County Sheriff’s Deputy accused of “groping” females while on duty has been indicted. Fulton County Grand Jurors returned a five count indictment Friday against 38-year-old Nakia Dorsey on charges of False Imprisonment (two counts), Sexual Battery (two counts) and Simple Battery (one count) in connection with two separate incidents at the Fulton County Courthouse.
The most recent incident occurred on May 30, 2012. The indictment alleges that Deputy Dorsey escorted a 27-year-old woman who was involved in a court case to a private office in the courthouse under the pretense of returning property to her. Once inside the room, the woman was fondled and, as alleged in the indictment, Deputy Dorsey exposed himself to the victim. Dorsey is accused of then temporarily blocking a door to prevent the woman from leaving. The victim notified officials with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department shortly after the incident. The case was then forwarded to the Atlanta Police Department and later to the District Attorney’s Public Integrity Unit
Further investigation by the Atlanta Police Department revealed a previously unreported incident which occurred on October 3, 2011. The indictment alleges that during that incident, Deputy Dorsey took a 20-year-old woman, who was also in court for a case, to a private office near the courtroom. He then allegedly detained and fondled her.
Deputy Dorsey, a six year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. A Grand Jury warrant has been issued for his arrest.
The case will now be assigned to a Fulton County Superior Court Judge and scheduled for trial.
