A police officer at the Los Angeles International Airport has been arrested for allegedly molesting a 14-year-old girl at a foster home operated by his mother in Inglewood, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reports. The 31-year-old officer reportedly “inappropriately touched” the girl. Police officials say no further misconduct was alleged.
When anyone is charged with a sex crime, such as child molestation, sexual battery or sexual assault, it is an extremely serious allegation that can have devastating consequences on their personal life and career. That is especially true when the defendant happens to be a law enforcement officer. If convicted, he or she would definitely face termination from their employment in the law enforcement agency. It will most certainly mark the end of their career in law enforcement. That is why it is extremely important to get skilled legal representation whenever you become aware that you are being investigated for a sex crime.
