Guam - A Superior Court grand jury indicts GPD officer Paul John Santos on first, second, and third degree criminal sexual conduct charges in addition to official misconduct and abetting prostitution charges.

Earlier this month Santos was arrested after a 31-year-old woman reported she was forced to have sex with Santos at the Ypao Hotel in Tumon.

The female victim told the FBI that she had lost her job as a dancer at a local establishment, which prompted her to place ads for her services on the Internet.

One man who responded to the ad identified himself as "Frank Smith" and requested for an appointment in the early morning of September 1st.

The man, who was identified as Santos from hotel footage, was wearing his GPD uniform and drove to the site in a police cruiser. The female victim alleges she was forced to have sex with Santos because he threatened to put her behind bars.

When interviewed by police, Santos stated he was "working on a prostitution sting" but his supervisor stated otherwise noting that Santos was not assigned to that patrol area.

Santos later admitted he had sex with the woman, which he did not pay for.

Santos will enter his plea on Wednesday.
