The protest was dropped, but the department conducted an internal investigation which found that he likely committed a crime.
Boston Police wouldn’t tell the newspaper what disciplinary action was taken against Rose.
Even with these inquiries, the department allowed Rose to serve as a patrolman for 21 years, eventually becoming a head of a union representing patrol officers, according to the Globe.
The investigation from the Globe further found that after the 1995 incident, Rose was still allowed to contact vulnerable children and was even called to testify as to the arresting officer in a child sexual assault case in 2006.
The news comes after Rose reportedly faces over 30 charges of sexual abuse of minors aged seven to 16 in Suffolk Superior Court. He is currently held in jail for $200,000 cash bail.
