Prosecutors are arguing former Chattanooga police officer Karl Fields concealed potentially exonerating evidence against a man facing rape charges to preserve a relationship he was having with the alleged victim, the Times Free Press reports. Fields, as an investigator with the major crimes division, allegedly had access to cellphone videos of the woman appearing to have consensual sex with the accused, but never turned them over to the DA’s office. He faces one count of tampering with evidence and one count of official misconduct.
