A Fort Wayne police officer charged with raping a woman last fall has accepted a deal in the crime.

Court documents maintain the officer took an intoxicated woman to a hospital and then later sexually assaulted her in a city park. The woman had been arrested for OWI. 

Rogers served with the police department for 19 years.   His trial was set to begin Sept. 16.
