Sheriff's Deputy Has Sex with 14 Year Old Girl

I'm sure she was resisting arrest.

Quote:
A deputy with the Frederick County Sheriff's Office was arrested Wednesday and charged with having sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl who attends the school where he worked as a resource officer.

Sam Allen Bowman, 46, of New Market, was assigned to Walkersville High School. According to charging documents filed in Frederick County District Court, Bowman engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a ninth-grade student, which included having sexual contact with her in his patrol car and in the girl's home.

The two also had frequent contact during the school day, including eating lunch together, the documents stated. Bowman also drove the girl home on three separate occasions, including on March 9, when the sexual contact allegedly took place. According to the documents, school officials approached the girl on March 15 with concerns about her relationship with Bowman, and told her she could no longer eat lunch with him or accept rides from him. Officials also confronted Bowman, but he never reported the conversation to his superiors, the documents state.

Detectives from the Frederick County Bureau of Investigation were contacted Monday by Child Protective Services and asked to assist with an investigation of possible child sex abuse involving a sheriff's deputy.

A CPS agent had interviewed the student earlier that day and concluded that she was not being honest about her relationship with Bowman. The girl acknowledged having frequent contact with Bowman but denied anything sexual occurred. She also acknowledged that rumors had been going around the school that the two were having sex. During a second interview with the CPS agent and an FCBI investigator on Wednesday, the girl said she engaged in sexual activity with Bowman on March 9 that began in his cruiser and moved to her bedroom, the documents stated.

According to the documents, the girl also told investigators that her mother had given her permission to have Bowman in the house to play a video game with her the day after the alleged sexual contact.

She said the two planned on having sex after he drove her home on March 14, but they didn't because her sister was home when they got there, the documents state.

Bowman was brought in for questioning Wednesday and, according to the documents, acknowledged to investigators that he had regular contact with the girl, including having lunch with her and driving her home. But he denied any sexual contact, and told investigators that he had gone into the girl's bedroom because he suspected she was inhaling paint fumes and wanted to check the room for evidence.

Logs taken from the on-board computer in Bowman's cruiser confirmed the dates and times Bowman was at the girl's house, the documents stated.

Sheriff Chuck Jenkins said he was shocked by the allegations and subsequent charges against Bowman. He said an internal investigation is being conducted concurrent with the criminal investigation.

"The shocking part is that this is a person who was hired as a law enforcement officer, and in this case someone who was trusted to protect students in the school system," Jenkins said.

Jenkins said a thorough background check of Bowman was conducted before he was hired by the sheriff's office in August 2010, despite his years of service with the Frederick Police Department, where he retired as a corporal.

"He went through the same background process as all our applicants and candidates," he said.

Bowman, who was released from the Frederick County Adult Detention Center after posting $75,000 bail, has been suspended without pay. Jenkins said the charges alone could result in Bowman being terminated, but it was too early to speculate about what might happen.

"There is a process, and we're going to uphold the process," Jenkins said.
Between this and the story about the "school resource officer" who had the girl suspended because he thought she was on drugs, I have to wonder if this is the sort of job they give really shitty cops.

And what's wrong with the parents? "Oh, a middle-aged man wants to play video games with our adolescent daughter after giving her a ride home. I don't see anything wrong with that."

I'm sure her parents felt intimidated by the the Deputy. Maybe they felt they would get into trouble if they threw him out.

All the liaison officers in my schools seemed to be below average.

The surprising part of story to me is that they actually suspended him without pay.

On the surface it sounds stupid but there might be more to that then the article states. Maybe the parents had become close to the deputy themselves and trusted him more than the article made it seem. Maybe because he was a police officer they thought he wouldn't do anything bad. Maybe they thought the deputy was keeping their daughter out of trouble so the idea of him being home with her while they were at work was comforting to them.

Right or Wrong, many hold police officers in the highest regard, and don't think they would try and pork their 14 yo daughter.

We're going to have to see a picture of this deputy before we can decide whether or not he's guilty...

Reminds me of what happened while I was in HS with our school resource officer!

Quote:
When Fairfax County police arrested Jeffrey R. Hand last week, they were making history - but not the kind they want remembered in the record books. Officer Hand, a 23-year veteran officer who could have retired three years ago, was accused of walking into a Burke bank on May 22 with a mask and a shotgun and demanding money. His arrest made him the first officer in recent memory to be charged with a violent crime.


But he is not the only county officer to find himself on the wrong side of the law lately. Just five weeks before Officer Hand's arrest, Detective Michael D. Kerns was convicted of malfeasance after investigators found property recovered in commercial robbery investigations - computer games, a radio, a tool kit and other items - in his home and office.The cases have left county police and their supporters scratching their heads."There are 1,100 uniformed police officers," said David G. Smith, principal of West Springfield High School where Officer Hand has been a school resource officer since 1995. "An allegation against one is not an indictment of them all. . . . I hope people will remember that."Lt. Col. David R. Franklin, who announced the arrest Thursday of Officer Hand, said it is "just an anomaly.""The bigger you get, something is going to happen," said Col. Franklin. "We have almost 1,500 officers and civilian employees."At the West Springfield District Station where Officer Hand worked - and from which officers responded to the bank robbery for which he now stands charged - the reaction was one of "utter disbelief.""The whole station is saddened and shocked," said Capt. P.D. O'Keefe, commander of the West Springfield station.Officer Hand, 43, is currently being held without bond for the robbery of the Central Fidelity Bank at 5815 Burke Centre Parkway, a robbery that netted the thief $71,782.He is also a suspect in at least three other area bank robberies, according to court documents, including one that FBI officials have described as "particularly violent."He has been relieved of his duties and put on leave, with pay, while his case is pending.Detective Kerns, 36, is waiting to learn if he will keep his job after his misdemeanor conviction.Last fall, he told investigators he was guilty only of "an oversight" after they found he had six pairs of expensive sunglasses, a 21-piece Precision tool kit, three sets of nickel-plated steel handcuffs, knickknacks from the Franklin Mint and assorted computer equipment that were supposed to be in the police property room.Prosecutors accused him of stealing the property and sought a felony embezzlement charge against Detective Kerns, a 16-year veteran of the force. But he was convicted April 29 of the misdemeanor malfeasance charge instead and fined $500 in Fairfax County Circuit Court.Col. Franklin said the arrest of Officer Hand and the conviction of Detective Kerns should not shake public confidence in the police."It's disappointing, but it's unusual," he said. "It's very unusual to have somebody with so much time on to be involved in something like this."Capt. O'Keefe had other concerns. "I certainly hope the community will continue to support us," he said.
