State Court records detail the events of a massage parlor bust that ended with a woman charged with solicitation of sodomy and her attorney asking a judge to order a Macon police officer to provide a DNA sample.
In a document filed May 13, the prosecution contends that the DNA sample is not relevant to the case and admits in a statement of facts that the officer was involved in a sex act.
Sun Ah Cho, 29, was arrested following a March 3 raid at Tokyo Health Spa, 2790 Riverside Drive. Cho’s attorney has said once Cho realized that her client was an officer, she grabbed a condom used in the sex act and put it in a freezer. The attorney later sent off the sample for DNA testing.
Deputy Chief Mike Carswell said Monday that there was no Internal Affairs investigation in the case.
“There weren’t any policy violations involved that we are aware of,” Carswell said.
Police have maintained that the officer acted appropriately on the night of the raid, and that the women at massage parlors have been “aggressive” with some officers.
Carswell said the officer acted within established rules.
“Things don’t always turn out the way we expect them to,” he said.
Court records detail the undercover police officer’s encounter with Cho:
On March 3, the officer requested a 30-minute massage and paid $40 to a woman who led him to a private room. The woman told the officer to get undressed and left the room.
Another woman, Cho, came to the room minutes later and put a towel over the officer’s midsection. She asked the officer to roll onto his stomach and she massaged his shoulders, back and legs.
Cho later instructed the officer to roll onto his back, and she continued to massage his body while occasionally brushing her hand against his genital area.
The woman then asked the officer if he wanted a “hand, face or body,” which the officer believed to mean that Cho was offering to perform a sex act on him. The officer said he wanted “face,” and Cho said she charged $80.
Before the officer could hand over the money, though, Cho grabbed him and performed oral sex, causing the officer to reach climax.
The officer got off the table and called another investigator. Cho was charged with solicitation of sodomy.
Cho and her attorney have filed notice with the city of Macon that she plans to file a $500,000 lawsuit contending illegal arrest, sexual assault and battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
