US police officer who ordered women to perform jail-cell 'sex show' will be fired

A Philadelphia police officer who ordered two women to put on a "sex show" in a jail cell will be fired.

Norberto Cappas, 32, was found guilty by a police tribunal of conduct unbecoming an officer and lying during a departmental investigation, the department said Tuesday.

Internal Affairs investigators found that Cappas ordered the two women to kiss and touch each other and expose their breasts in September 2003. The two had been picked up on suspicion of drug possession, but they had no drugs and were not charged with a crime.

Cappas has denied wrongdoing and refused to talk to a Philadelphia Inquirer reporter seeking comment Tuesday.

The case sat idle for years until the Inquirer raised questions about it last year.

One of the women filed a civil lawsuit and was awarded $17,500 (euro13,000). The city's own lawyers concluded that she never should have been detained.
