Former SAPD officers convicted in sex scheme

Two former SAPD officers have been found guilty on all charges involving a scheme in which they tricked women into having sex with them.

The jury deliberated for about five hours before handing down the verdict.

Emmanuel Galindo was convicted of five counts of sexual assault, six counts of compelling prostitution, and 12 counts of official oppression. Alejandro Chapa was convicted of four counts of sexual assault, four counts of compelling prostitution, and eight counts of official oppression.

Sexual assault and compelling prostitution are both second-degree felonies, punishable by two to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. Official oppression is a Class A misdemeanor offense, punishable by up to one year in jail and up to a $4,000 fine.

The sentencing phase began shortly after the verdicts were announced.

Galindo is facing up to 232 years in prison and a maximum $162,000 fine while Chapa is facing up to 168 years in prison and a maximum $112,000 fine.
