Officer Claims He Was Pressured to Frame Mateen Cleaves in Sexual Assault Case [VIDEO]
A Mundy Township police officer who was leading the investigation in the sexual assault case against Mateen Cleaves says he was pressured to find the Flint native guilty.
Cleaves is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a Mundy Township motel last fall, while he was in town for a charity golf outing.
Officer Brian Ogle, a school liaison with Mundy Township, says he was pressured by the Wayne County prosecutor's office to find Cleaves guilty, and was handed a two-day suspension when he spoke up about the alleged impropriety. Wayne County is handling Cleaves' investigation.
Cleaves is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, May 16. His attorney, Frank Manley, tells ABC-12 that this could have a dramatic effect on the case.
