    It is about time this man was charged over what he did to this girl. This man has bragged about what he did to her n others. I was horrified that he then became a police officer.

    And why wasn’t a police check done on him before he entered the force. This is how corrupt police fly under the radar. Asshole. Hope he gets what he deserves in jail

  • I have not heard anything about this.. Until now. I’m so happy that they got him. But why do they give them bail ? If he stole a car he would be locked up. This is a child & now that child & family know this monster that did the unthinkable. Is out!! When is the laws really be about the victims…
