Cop Charged With Taking Nekkid Pics Of Girl
The children can’t even trust the police.
According to Dcist:
A D.C. police officer was arrested and charged with production of child freaky pics this week.
The Metropolitan Police Department became aware of an allegation against Officer Marc Washington that he produced nekkid images of a juvenile on Monday, according to a release. After an investigation, Washington was arrested by the Youth Investigations Division and the Internal Affairs Bureau.
“We invest a great amount of time and effort to ensure that we are hiring the right people and we continue to proactively monitor integrity across the department,” Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said in a statement. “But to learn of an allegation of this kind against a person who is sworn to protect our children, it is both shocking and disturbing. We are fortunate that someone came forward to alert us of this behavior to ensure that we prevent future victims.”
Update: According to charging documents, uploaded by WUSA9, Washington responded to the apartment of a missing 15-year-old girl on December 1 to take a report from her mother. The victim returned home later that day, and her mother called 911 to take her off the missing persons’ list.
Washington then allegedly returned to the home without being called and asked to speak to the victim privately. The officer asked the victim where she was when she was reported missing then asked her to remove her top and bra. When asked why he wanted her to do this, he responded that he needed to take photos of any injuries. The victim explained that she did not have any injuries.
The officer allegedly took photos of her breasts and upper body before asking her to show him her hip tattoos for identification purposes. The victim was instructed to pull down her boxer shorts and underwear, and Washington then photographed her “unclothed vajajay area.”
After Washington left, the mother and daughter called 911. The officer was searched and a camera was found on his person. Images of the victim had been deleted, according to the charging document, but were recovered by law enforcement.
Other images of unidentified women, including two who appear to be minors, were found on the camera.
