A Los Angeles police officer was arrested Thursday and accused of having an unlawful sexual relationship with a 15-year-old member of the department’s cadet program, the latest embarrassment stemming from an investigation into thefts and other misconduct tied to the program.
Officer Robert Cain, 31, allegedly had sex in the past month with a teenager suspected with other cadets of being involved in the recent thefts of police cruisers and other LAPD equipment.
Cain also allegedly knew of, and helped facilitate, the string of thefts that has rattled the department in recent days.
Despite the evidence against him, Cain’s bail was set at an measly $75,000. One of the perks of serving the Police State.
