Cop Charged In Second Sex Assault Case

DENVER -In May, Bini was arrested and charged with multiple counts for allegedly paying $20 to two juvenile girls to have sex while he watched. The girls say the incident happened at a GNC store on the 16th Street Mall where Bini worked. The store is owned by Bini's wife.

Now, Bini is being charged in a case with striking parallels.

On Aug. 21, 2007, a young woman went to the GNC nutrition store at 5616 S. Gibraltar Way in Centennial, also owned by Bini's wife.

According to a police report, the woman was shopping for diet pills. She said Bini, who was running the operation, told her "she was a beautiful girl" and offered her a job on the spot, telling her to return the next day with a resume. The woman told police she went back the next morning and that Bini was the only one in the store.

According to the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office offense report, Bini told her he wanted to interview her in a back room. She said Bini started off professionally but then told her she was "so hot" and said, "I swear, if you work here, we're going to end up sleeping together."

A few minutes later, she said Bini hugged her and put his hands on her behind. She said she told him that was not OK. According to the woman, Bini then started to reach down the front of her pants. She said she pushed him away.

As the woman began to leave, she said Bini made a number of overtly sexual comments to her.

While the woman reported the alleged incident within days, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said she decided not to pursue the case. But Robinson said she reconsidered after learning about the alleged 2008 incident at the GNC store in Denver.
