SCRANTON — Legal troubles continue for a Luzerne County cop accused of forcing women to perform non-consensual sex acts.
R. Doe and S. Doe filed a civil lawsuit on Jan. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against Mark Icker, alleging he deprived plaintiffs' rights under the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Icker was arrested late last year.
According to the complaint, in December, R. Doe and S. Doe were driving through Ashley on different occasions when they were directed by a police officer to stop.
Although plaintiffs had not committed any crime, Icker allegedly forced them to perform an oral sex act on him. Plaintiffs claim Icker engaged in unlawful oppression and coercion, threatening to charge them with felonies and send them to jail if they did not comply.
The plaintiffs holds Icker responsible because the defendant allegedly used his authority in a way that created danger or that rendered him dangerous to individuals by forcing them to perform an oral sex act on him.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment for punitive damages, attorneys' fees, costs, disbursements incurred, and such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper. They are represented by Barry Dyller and Theron Solomon of Dyller Law Firm in Wilkes-Barre.
