Pigs on the Police Force
Here is a public service announcement to all police departments, when you find guys like this in your ranks it is probably a better idea to kick them from your ranks and throw the book at them, legally speaking. Protecting them just gets their stink on you.
FAIRMONT — A Marion County sheriff’s deputy accused of sending sexual text messages to a 17-year-old girl, was back in court Thursday.
Cpl. Joseph McKinney pleaded guilty to four counts of indecent exposure.
He was sentenced to 12 months in the regional jail for each count, to be served consecutively.
Judge David Janes then suspended the sentence and placed McKinney on supervised probation for four years.
He was also required to resign from the sheriff’s department.
McKinney worked for the department for 11 years.
And just to be clear, if it was another 17 year old or a non-LEO adult sexting with this girl, he’d likely be charge with child pornography and/or indecent exposure, and wind up looking at jail time and time on the sex offender registry. There really are two Americas when it comes to the law. One for us peasants and one for the Law Enforcement Officers.
