MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A former Memphis police officer charged with driving two women to a party at a north Mississippi hotel so they could strip and perform sex acts is going to trial.
U.S. District Judge S. Thomas Anderson set an Oct. 7 trial date for Sean McWhirter today.
McWhirter has pleaded not guilty to charges of transporting the women for prostitution and racketeering. He was arrested Sept. 17, 2012, and has resigned from the force.
FBI agents said McWhirter took payment for the prostitutes while he was on duty in Memphis. The FBI alleges McWhirter later drove the unidentified women to a hotel in Tunica, Miss., where several casino-hotels are located.
The FBI says one of the women told agents McWhirter drove her there to engage in prostitution.
