BALTIMORE (WJZ) - A grand jury has indicted a Baltimore City police officer for child sex abuse.
Frederick Allen is being charged with two counts of sexual child abuse of a minor and third-degree sex offense for allegedly having a sexual relationship with an under-age female victim between June 2005 and September 2006.
“We are dedicated to investigating and prosecuting officers who breach the public trust by violating the law,” State’s Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein said in a news release.
“This indictment is another example of the BPD working with the State’s Attorney’s Office to ensure the integrity of the Department. Fred Allen’s alleged actions are shameful and do a great disservice to the hard work of the men and women of the Baltimore Police Department,” Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said in the release.
An arraignment date has not yet been set.
