Officer Keith Hicks Pleads Guilty to Harassing Women

A Camden police officer who served as a driver and ever-present confidant to former mayor Gwendolyn Faison has pleaded guilty to harassing women.

Keith Hicks, a 19-year veteran of the city police force, admitted Monday that twice last year he ordered women into his personal truck when he was off duty but in uniform, and touched them "offensively.''

He also admitted that he once demanded that a woman partially undress before she was processed for an outstanding warrant.

The 51-year-old Hicks, who lives in Gloucester Township, was suspended from the force in August 2009.

As a result of his plea, he is expected to be sentenced to probation and must forfeit his police badge.

His lawyer, William Buckman, did not immediately return a call.
