Police Officer's Appeal Scheduled For April 9

An appeal by a Seattle police officer who was disciplined for forcibly kissing an 18-year-old in the SPD Explorer program will be heard at 10 a.m. April 9 before King County Superior Court Judge Paris Kallas.

The City’s Public Safety Civil Service Commission sustained former Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske’s decision to suspend Officer Rob Mahoney for 30 days and transfer him from the training unit. A third finding – that the officer acted dishonestly by denying that he forced himself on the Holy Names Academy student in 2008 – was overturned by the commission.
