The Los Angeles police officer at the center of a scandal roiling the department’s signature youth initiative has been charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old member of the cadet program, prosecutors announced Friday.
Robert Cain, 31, was charged Thursday with two counts each of oral copulation of a person under the age of 16, lewd acts upon a child and unlawful sexual intercourse, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
Cain’s arraignment in a downtown courtroom Friday morning was delayed as he remains in custody in San Bernardino County in connection with felony weapons charges that arose from the investigation into the cadet scandal.
Cain is accused of sexually assaulting the cadet in three separate incidents at three different locations on June 14. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of seven years and eight months in state prison.
Some hero eh?
