A former police officer has been found guilty of raping a 5-year-old girl at his central Vancouver home. Jury deliberations on Friday lasted 6-1/2 hours, which is much longer than it should’ve taken to convict this piece of sh*t.
Christopher Warren was found guilty Friday of first-degree child rape after the victim, now 6, testified that the former Beaverton police officer inserted a pencil in her genital area.
Defense attorneys argued that Warren’s ex-wife coached the girl after he decided to file for divorce and pursue a relationship with another woman.
The sex abuse claims were made about the same time he became engaged to the other woman, attorney Louis Byrd Jr. told reporters.
Warren was fired twice from the Beaverton police department.
He was fired first in 2011 when an internal investigation found he lied two years earlier during a criminal probe into claims that he sexually abused a minor when he was 17 years old.
Police found probable cause to prosecute Warren, but the victim declined to cooperate.
As Opposing Views reports, he was later reinstated to his job, only to again be terminated in August 2013 after being indicted on charges of welfare fraud in Washington County, Ore.
According to Opposing Views, In February, he was found guilty of unlawfully obtaining food stamps and first-degree theft for seeking and accepting Oregon welfare benefits while he was a Washington resident. He was sentenced to 10 days in jail, two years of probation, 100 hours of community service and $3,000 in restitution.
