Milwaukee, WI - On Thursday, Dominique L. Heaggan-Brown, 24, a Milwaukee Police Officer was charged with two felony counts for 2nd-degree sexual assault of intoxicated victim, 2nd-degree sexual assault of unconscious victim, one felony count for capture an intimate representation and two misdemeanor counts for prostitution-none maritial intercourse for the August 15 sexual assault of a male victim. If convicted of all counts, Heaggan-Brown is facing up to 40 years in prison for each count of sexual assault and up to $100,000 in fines for each count, 3 years and 6 months in prison and up to $10,000 in fines for one count of capture an intimate representation, and 9 months in prison and $10,000 in fines for each count of prostitution.
Officer Heaggan-Brown was taken into custody on Thursday by police and was booked at the Milwaukee County jail, which a hold has been placed preventing bail release.
The Milwaukee Police Department has suspended Officer Heaggan-Brown with pay pending the outcome of the case. Officer Heaggan-Brown was first identified by Hispanic News Network U.S.A. as the officer who fatally shot Sylville Smith, 23, in the Sherman Park neighborhood at N. 4th Street and W. Auer Ave. on August 13 and an unrest followed for weeks. 28 people were arrested and charged with various crimes resulting from the Sherman Park unrest after Smith was murdered by Officer Heaggan-Brown.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice concluded its investigation and the Smith death investigation results have been turned over to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office for review and to determine, if the homicide of Smith by Officer Heaggan-Brown was justified. 
The Milwaukee Police Department has not released the body camera videos showing Officer Heaggan-Brown fatally shoot Smith, which had raised concerns and allegations of the lack of transparency by the police department. According to the criminal complaint against Officer Heaggan-Brown, the off-duty officer sexually assaulted the male victim several days after killing Smith while on duty.
Police found explicit nude photos of the male victim in Officer Heaggan-Brown's cellphone, which the victim denied giving any consent for the photos or engaging in sex. The victim didn't know that the Officer took photos while he was unconscious at the time of the sexual assault. They also found cellphone texts messages soliciting several males for prostitution as well as another alleged second sexual assault from last July, according to the criminal complaint.
Officer Heaggan-Brown is also a singer and composer who video recorded a song and was posted on YouTube about doing drugs, shooting people, igniting a riot like Baltimore and weapons.
