CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A Virgin Islands Police Department officer was charged with first-degree rape today.

Mikhail Woodley, 30, was arrested and charged with one count of first-degree rape-domestic violence, the VIPD said.

A St. Thomas woman told police that she was sexually assaulted by the police officer at her residence last month.

The Domestic Violence Unit met with a woman on Thursday who said on June 21 a man forced himself on her, pushing and pinning her to the bed while removing her clothing, and sexually assaulted her.

Woodley was booked, processed and turned over to the Bureau of Corrections pending an advice of rights hearing, according to the VIPD.

No bail was set as per Domestic Violence Law.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
