Lead Detective In Rape Case Charged With Sex Offenses

Former Detective George W. Irvine of Ventura Police Department, may seriously jeopardize the prosecution of accused rapist Peter A Stocks. Surrounded by controversy regarding his own misconduct, the former California detective who lead the Stocks investigation may not be able to testify in the Stocks rape trial.

The 47-year-old officer resigned last fall after being accused of sexually molesting two teenage girls over a nine year period. One of the victims was 12 years of age at the time of the first molestation. The case against serial rapist Stocks, who has confessed to the crime, would be severely weakened without Irvine’s testimony.
