Deputy Roderick Calhoun's mug shot.

Roderick Vincent Calhoun, a 14 year veteran of the Wayne County Sheriff's Department, has already lost his job and may lose his freedom, potentially for life. He was arraigned earlier today on sexual and physical assault charges stemming from the serial rapes of a 24 year old relative.

Police say Calhoun forced the woman, who had lived in his Livonia home, to perform sexual acts at gunpoint. He reportedly beat the woman with a belt and choked her. He threatened to kill other family members if she failed to cooperate.
The Wayne sheriff's office has suspended Calhoun.

The former deputy was arraigned in Livonia's 16th district court on a number of very serious felony charges. They are: four counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct in the first degree (CSC-1), four counts of CSC-3, assault with intent to do great bodily harm, felonious assault, and felony firearm. Conviction of CSC-1 exposes a defendant to a maximum of life in prison.

The name of the victim is being withheld due to the nature of the charges. Beyond saying the victim is a relative of Calhoun, the nature of the blood relationship has not been specified.
