MEMPHIS (FOX13) - An accused dirty cop is back in court this morning.

Former MPD officer Brandon Berry is accused of forcing men to perform sex acts in exchange for not arresting them.

A complaint was filed against Berry in January 2013.

A victim went to the MPD Sex Crimes Bureau and reported that during traffic stop on Lamar Avenue, Berry told him he wouldn't go to jail if he performed a sex act with him.

The victim ID'd the former policeman in a photo line-up.

Berry resigned from the MPD in May, after three years on the force.

Then in June he was indicted by a Shelby County Grand Jury on one count of official misconduct.

The rest of the details of the case won't be made public until the case goes to trial.
