Former Florida probation officer abused his post, sexually assaulted two people: Hillsborough MPs
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A former Florida Department of Corrections probation officer was arrested on Friday after an investigation found he abused his position and sexually assaulted at least two people, said Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Friday.
Detectives say Jeremy Greenidge, 26, had oral sex with two of his victims and requested a third for oral sex while acting in an official capacity.
Police said all three victims believed Greenidge would violate their probations if they did not commit the sex acts.
The HCSO began investigating Greenidge after one of the victims came forward. MPs say Greenidge was employed as a probation officer between June 2021 and October 2021.
“He is an individual who has taken an oath to ensure the safety of his community. He not only broke that oath, but he also abused his power, ”said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “No matter who you are or what your position is, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office will never tolerate someone taking advantage of others.
Greenidge was arrested and faces charges of Sexual Violence in Specified Circumstances and Attempted Sexual Violence in Specified Circumstances.
Anyone who believes they are a victim of this crime is asked to call the HCSO at 1-813-247-8200.
