Detective accused of sexting teens

Teens are often warned about the perils of "sexting," the practice of sending barely-clothed or naked erotic pictures of themselves to others. The warnings frequently come from parents, teachers and even the police.

According to a recent news report, one New Jersey cop who had previously warned teenagers not to send these explicit photos may not have been following his own advice. The detective sergeant with the Glen Rock Police Department stands accused of sexting with a couple of teenage girls he investigated due to juvenile complaints involving them both.

The officer previously addressed children in 2009 about the dangers of taking and sending naked photos via smartphones. The police effort was a response to a middle school girl sexting photos that were widely circulated among her schoolmates.

The 51-year-old father of three reportedly texted "inappropriate" messages to a girl who was 17. Her mother discovered the messages on her daughter's cellphone.

Then, as officers began an investigation into the police detective, they learned of an even younger girl to whom the cop had allegedly been sexting. According to statements made to the Bergen County Record by the county prosecutor, the detective apparently persuaded a 14-year-old teen to send him nude photos of herself. He reciprocated with "two naked photos of his private part," the prosecutor alleged.

Both of the teens were under the supervision of the sexting officer at the time of the incidents. He now faces five counts of endangering a child's welfare while police actively seek other alleged victims.

The Bergen County prosecutor said, "We will . . . be reviewing every juvenile this sergeant had contact with in Glen Rock."

Accusations of sexting with a minor are enough to derail a career, break up a marriage and alienate family members and friends. The court of public opinion can be every bit as harsh as a criminal court.

Those facing such allegations need strong legal allies to vigorously defend their rights and reputations.
