Mount Rainier officer ordered held without bond

UPPER MARLBORO — A Prince George’s County judge has ordered a Mount Rainier police officer indicted on attempted murder and sex-offense charges to be held without bond.

Prosecutors accuse 27-year-old Gene Gillette of shooting a man in his Capitol Heights home after assaulting him, touching his genitals and trying to sexually assault him on July 2. They say Gillette was off-duty when he met the 20-year-old man. Prosecutors say Gillette told the man that he was making a pornographic movie and needed a male actor.

Gillette’s defense attorney said in court Wednesday that whatever happened inside the home was consensual and that Gillette fired his gun in self-defense.

Gillette was indicted earlier this week by a county grand jury on 12 counts, including attempted murder, attempted sex offense and false imprisonment.
