New allegations against officer charged with rape

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say a San Jose police officer charged with raping a woman while on duty is facing new domestic-violence allegations involving a former girlfriend.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday that 38-year-old Geoffrey Graves is charged with two felony counts of domestic violence for separate incidents involving the ex-girlfriend.

Graves entered not-guilty pleas to those charges.

In one of the incidents, prosecutors say, Graves kicked a door the woman had tried to close during an argument, and the door hit her in the face, cutting her lips.

Last month Graves pleaded not guilty to a charge of forcible rape in a separate case.

He is accused of raping the woman last September after responding to a family disturbance call at her home.
