HOUSTON – A Houston ISD police officer has been arrested after being accused of sexually assaulting a woman off-campus.
Kristopher Carter, 35, has since been charged with sexual assault and invasive visual recording.
According to court documents, Carter is accused of assaulting a woman who let him stay with her during the winter storm in February when he lost power and water.
Court documents said Carter walked into the woman’s bedroom, locked her door and forcefully grabbed her and removed her underwear.
The woman told Carter to leave, according to court documents, but instead, he forced himself on top of her.
Court documents said the woman then tried to call for her daughter who was inside of the home during the assault, but Carter told her to be quiet.
The woman said while Carter was sexually assaulting her she tried to fight him off, but eventually stopped, closed her eyes and let him finish.
Court documents said the assault lasted approximately 10 minutes.
Days later, court documents say Carter sent the woman pictures that he took during the assault.
Carter has since been fired from HISD. The district released the following statement:
“The Houston Independent School District is aware that an HISD police officer was arrested Tuesday, May 25th regarding an incident unrelated to the performance of his HISD duties. Upon arrest, the officer was immediately relieved of his duties. HISD is fully cooperating with the Harris County Sheriff Office’s investigation.”
Carter’s bond has been set at $60,000.
