Ste. Genevieve County, MO -- On Saturday morning, Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff's Major Jason Schott announced Marty L. Rainey, a former Gasconade County law enforcement officer facing state and federal charges involving a series of assaults on women and children, was found dead in his cell.
The sheriff's office is remaining tight-lipped on the details for now, only saying that “At this point, it appears to be a suicide, but the investigation is ongoing.”
Asked if Rainey had been on suicide watch, Schott declined to answer, citing the ongoing investigation and saying he would not answer any specific questions. He said that video from jail cameras was being downloaded and staff was being interviewed.
For years, this predator used his badge and gun to inflict his sick desires on countless victims.
In August 2014, a co-worker discovered a thumb drive belonging to Rainey that contained photos and videos of his victims. Police then raided his home seizing multiple computers, cameras, flash drives, and other storage devices.
According to the court records, Rainey used his authority to sexually abuse women and children. He was indicted on multiple counts of felony deprivation of rights on the color of law for crimes involving “acts of aggravated sexual abuse” against four women and the enticement of a minor to engage in prostitution.
This 'hero cop' was also charged with multiple sexual assault counts and acceding to corruption by a public servant as well as statutory rape and use of a child in a sexual performance.
As if the horrific abuse of authority on women and children wasn't bad enough, Rainey also went after the mentally ill. In promising to help a mentally ill woman who'd been the victim of a crime, Rainey began to stalk her and send her sexual pictures. He then told the mother if she wanted help solving her crime, she'd have to force her young daughter to strip for nude photos.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Rainey wasn't alone in his abusive endeavors.
Rainey’s friend, Jonathan Pohlmann, 47, pleaded guilty Monday to a federal charge of conspiracy to violate civil rights. Although his plea agreement was sealed, he was accused of conspiring with Rainey to “injure, oppress, threaten, and intimidate” women with whom Rainey came in contact while on duty. The acts “resulted in bodily injury,” charging documents say.
One need only perform a simple Google search to see the atrocities carried out by this nation's public servants. On a daily basis, police officers make the digital blotter with stories of sexual assault, molestation, child porn, and worse.
Not only are police involved in the illegal version of rape, but they are not afraid to legally rape individuals in search of a plant. Last year, the Free Thought Project reported on the horrific case of Charnesia Corley, who had her vagina penetrated by police in a public parking lot because they smelled weed.
