On Wednesday, August 31, 2011, Philadelphia Police Officer Keith Corley II was arrested for an incident that occurred on Thursday, August 11, 2011, in the 100 block of Cobbs Creek Parkway.

A Philadelphia jury found a Philadelphia police officer not guilty Friday of charges that he raped a woman in a patrol car.

Keith Corley was also acquitted of sexual assault charges.

He was found guilty of indecent exposure and official oppression.

Corley was charged in August, 2011, after a woman in her 30s told police she was sexually assaulted in a patrol car by a police officer.

Corley, then 27, was charged after sources said DNA evidence linked him to the crime.

Corley is a four-year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department assigned to the 18th District.
