According to a KSHB.com report, Officer Jeffrey Holmes turned himself in on Monday. He is facing two felony counts of acceding to corruption by a public servant.

One woman told police she was working as a prostitute, and the other said she had outstanding warrants and marijuana in her motel room when she met Jeffrey Holmes. Prosecutors say Holmes, 47, accepted sex from the women in return for not arresting them during alleged incidents in March and April according to an Associated Press report.

According to Jean Peters Baker, Jackson County prosecutor,  Holmes was off-duty when both incidents allegedly occurred.

“It’s extremely disappointing and it’s actually infuriating, but it’s also very good day when someone like that who wears the blue uniform and carried the badge no longer will,” Baker said. “We don’t want an individual like that in the department, and I know (Kansas City Police) Chief Forté shares that opinion as well.”

Baker said the women will not face any prostitution or drug charges.

Though prosecutors initially requested a $25,000 bond, Holmes the bond was changed to $75,000, which Holmes posted Tuesday during arraignment.
