MPD officer charged with rape makes bail, given set of rules, court says

Memphis, Teen. — A Memphis Police officer accused of kidnapping and raping a teenage girl is out of jail.

According to an affidavit, Travis Pride, 31, picked up a woman after she requested a Lyft ride to Parkway Village.

Pride was located and transported to the Sex Crimes Bureau, where he was charged with Aggravated Kidnapping and Rape, the arrest affidavit said.

He went before a judge this morning with his lawyer Michael Campbell present. Campbell and Attorney Eric Mogy are representing Pride.

“Today we signed the representation for Mr. Pride,” Campbell said.

Judge Karen Massey approved his bond.

“Well what we need to do is have everyone just slow done. Don’t rush to any judgement. That’s what we have our legal system for,” Mogy said.

Judge Massey gave Pride a curfew that will go from 11p.m until 6 a.m.

“There are stipulations that cases of this nature require and that is a standard curfew and checking in and out with the court on a weekly basis,” Campbell said.

Memphis Police said in statement last week they have relieved Pride of duty pending the outcome of the investigation.
