A San Diego Police Officer accused of inappropriately touching and sexually assaulting women in their 20s and 30s during traffic stops is charged with five criminal counts, including felony false imprisonment and misdemeanor sexual battery. 30 year old Officer Christopher Hays faces three years and eight months in prison if convicted. The charges filed against Hays -- two counts of false imprisonment and three misdemeanor counts of sexual battery -- involve four women who were allegedly victimized between October and December of last year. Three other women have come forward to say they were victimized by Hays. The case is still under review and more charges are possible. One of hays' alleged victims told police the officer forced her to perform oral sex in the back of his patrol car. Hays is a former Marine and married father of two whose father-in-law is assistant San Diego Police Chief Mark Jones.
