Friday, we reported on another police officer who was arrested for a sex crime.
After doing some digging to see just how common it is that people in authority who have trusted access to our children, such as police and teachers, commit sex crimes, we found that it’s not so uncommon. Over the past year there have been a couple dozen police officers arrested for sex offenses.
For the second phase of that investigation, we’re looking to see what happened to them…
Remember this guy… http://floridaactioncommittee.org/no-sex-offender-label-for-convicted-officer-of-the-year-in-florida/? That guy was a TOTAL PREDATOR and no registration.
