As the investigation continued, more women started coming forward with complaints about Tremaine.

"We were horrified," said DPS director Col. Frank Milstead.

So far, at least nine victims have been discovered, and DPS says more victims could be out there.

DPS says it has found that "a pattern of offenses and a history of behavior by Jackson existed before and after the [reported] assault."

Jackson would say things repeatedly to the women like, "What am I gonna do with you?" and "What are you willing to do for me?"

“Those two make sense to me,” said psychologist Dr. Petra Peper.

Peper said those comments are used to clearly establish he was the dominant, and the accusers were his subordinates, something she sees often with sexual abuse cases.

Your guard is down so you’re much more thinking this is somebody who will protect, take care of me,” she said. “To think about how that can turn, and it just makes your brain spin and it’s really hard to recover and you lose your mental ability to wrap your brain around that.”

Dr. Peper said the women likely faced another internal challenge in reporting the abuse because he was a trooper.

“I don’t know if anyone will believe me,” Peper said.

She said the higher the authority, the less likely women feel their story will be seen as the truth.

There are disturbing details are emerging about the things Tremaine allegedly said and did during these traffic stops.

What follows is a detailed account of what victims say happened during each traffic stop, according to the court paperwork.

She says Jackson "told her if she showed him her breasts, he would not cite her," and asked her to "rub her breasts on him." He also said "he was getting excited" and asked her to touch his penis. For each of  those demands, the woman said she could not do it in public.

Jackson then asked her for phone number "and told her to send him nude pictures of her breasts, in exchange for no citation."

The woman said she was scared and just wanted to leave, and was scared to make Jackson angry.

VICTIM #8 & VICTIM #9

-Oct. 30, 2018 4:14 a.m.

-Gas station at 67th Ave. & Latham Street

According to the police report, this is the account the women (Victim #8 & #9) gave of their encounter with Jackson.

Jackson was working an off-duty security job when he conducted a traffic stop in his DPS patrol car. This was not a situation in which he should have been making traffic stops, says the court paperwork.

Victim #8 was driving and Victim #9 was in the front passenger seat. They say that Jackson asked Victim 8 to sit in the back of his patrol car. He asked her "What do you think we should do?" to which she replied, "I don't know; you're the boss."

She later said that "she presumed Jackson was going to take her to jail so she might as well sleep," so she went to sleep in the backs eat of his patrol car.

Meantime, Jackson was talking to Victim 9, asking about her job as a dancer, complimenting her tattoos and rubbing and caressing her arm.

When Jackson said, "What do you think I should do with you guys?" she first said she would give him money, then said she would give him a dance. He asked, "Just a dance?" suggesting a dance was not enough. The woman stated that she thought Jackson was trying to get her to perform sexual favors.

He told her that his body camera was turned off.

The woman says he then grabbed her hand and placed it on his groin on he outside of his uniform.

In order to get away, the woman told Jackson she "would take care of him if he let them go," and stated "you do me a favor, I do you a favor.'"

She says Jackson finally let them both leave, but he later contacted her on Snapchat and asked: "You forget about me?"

[RAW VIDEO: Ex-trooper accused of sex abuse walks into Maricopa County jail]

Between Jan. 1, 2018, and June 11, 2019, records show that Jackson stopped more female drivers than male drivers.

Court documents state that "Jackson generated DPS warnings with false information, false times, false locations, false violations and with no legal violation of law to conduct the traffic stop."

"During traffic stops, Jackson behaved unprofessionally, exhibited specific body language... when placing the female victims in positions of desperation and fear," the court documents continue.

Jackson used his authority as a peace officer to further his "predatory behavior and illegally detained women he found attractive."

In addition, court documents show that Jackson claimed overtime hours that were not earned, and "while Jackson claimed such overtime compensation for work, Jackson was targeting and assaulting female victims."

He was using his position of authority to extort sexual favors," Milstead said.

Jackson worked for DPS for 13 years and was most recently assigned to the Metro Motors District. He has since been been fired.

He faces 61 charges including sexual abuse, attempted sexual abuse, sexual extortion, kidnapping, tampering with public records and forgery.

DPS is asking any other possible victims to come forward.

"I implore anyone who had contact to Trooper Jackson who may have been affected by him, who may have been victimized either commentary or through physical action by Trooper Jackson to please come forward and let us know about your inappropriate experience," said Milstead.

The department has set up a hotline number of 602-223-2389 and a website of https://www.azdps.gov/jackson for people who may have been victimized by Jackson.

When Jackson appeared in court Wednesday morning, his lawyer, David Cantor, stated that Jackson is a military veteran who takes care of seven kids.

Cantor said that Jackson has known about the charges since June and did not try to leave the state.

The judge set a secured appearance bond of $150,000 for Jackson.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

We asked DPS what someone should do if they ever feel uncomfortable during a traffic stop.

They suggest the following steps:
-Get the Trooper’s name and badge number
-Make note of location, date and time
-You can call 911 and request another trooper
-You can file a complaint via phone or email
-Be specific about the situation, write down words exchanged and what happened 
 
DPS says every complaint is accepted and investigated immediately (valid or invalid.) The agency will follow up, and Internal Affairs will investigate.
 
The number to report a complaint is 602-223-2000.
