The jury in the trial of former Anchorage police officer Anthony Rollins, who stands accused of abusing his authority to sexually assault six women, heard closing arguments in the case Monday morning.
Prosecutors began by listing similarities among accusers' descriptions of all six alleged assaults, including Rollins addressing each of the women as "baby," asking them out to lunch, and calling their homes dozens of times.
The state told the jury Rollins "abused his power in the most vile way."
Rollins' attorney Susan Carney says it comes down to, "he said, she said," and the jury needs to look at each case separately. The defense says Rollins made, "serious errors," but it wasn't rape.
"If it's consent there's no crime," Carney said.
