Former hero Philadelphia police-officer-turned-rape-suspect Richard DeCoatsworth petitioned a judge to lower his $60 million bail Monday.

Authorities claim DeCoatsworth drugged and raped two women and forced them into prostitution.

He's also charged with an assault on his girlfriend.

A decision on the bail reduction is not expected until at least next week.

DeCoatsworth was celebrated back in 2007 for chasing a suspect after being shot in the face.

He was even a guest of the First Lady at the President's State of the Union Address.
