Former Anchorage police officer Anthony Rollins was convicted of 18 out of 20 counts of sexual assault and misconduct Tuesday.
Rollins was found innocent on one count of sexual assault and one count of official misconduct pretaining to one of the six victims.
"We've all been disappointed with Anthony's conduct as a police officer. He hurt the victims, he hurt our community and he hurt every police officer in the Anchorage Police Department and we're disgusted by his behavior,” said APD Sgt. Derek Sheih, president of the APD Employee Association.
The jury had been deliberating since last Monday.
"This jury obviously had a very tough job to do to sift through this. They sat through almost three weeks of testimony from all different sources. We gave them a lot of evidence to sift through. I think that they did a great job. I'm very pleased for the verdict and I'm very, very happy for the victims,” said Deputy District Attorney Sharon Marshall.
Rollins stood trial for nearly three weeks, facing accusations from six women who took the stand and testified that Rollins sexually assaulted them.
The assaults took place between 2006 and 2009, mainly at the now-closed police substation in Mountain View.
The prosecution cited similarities among the women's descriptions of the incidents, including Rollins calling each of them "baby" and asking them out to lunch. Several women also had tongue rings.
Prosecutors also said Rollins abused his power and had looked up personal information on the women, calling them dozens of times -- a violation of police code.
Rollins was also charged with official misconduct as a police officer and criminal use of a computer.
Rollins had testified on his own defense, in a packed courtroom of police officers. He told the court that the incidents were not sexual assaults, but consensual sex.
