Brooklyn, NY – 30 year-old Kevin Louther, an NYPD cop and youth officer, was arrested and charged in connection to an inappropriate relationship he apparently had with a 15 year-old girl.
The alleged relationship between the two was discovered and reported by the girl’s mother, who discovered explicit text messages and pictures sent to the girl. Police are saying that they do not believe the pair had sex, but that there was some smooching to accompany the texts and e-mails.
The two met through the departments ‘Law Enforcement Explorer’ program which, according to the program’s website, “reaches out to New York City’s young adults in every community to help build up relations between the community and New York City Police Department.” I’m pretty sure this sort of thing isn’t quite what they had in mind. Louther has been suspended without pay and is due in court again this week, facing charges of sex abuse, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child.
Oh… and his initial bail was set at $750. Just sayin’.Crime, Juvenile, Kevin Louther, New York, Police, sexting
