A police officer is behind bars after he was found guilty of sexually abusing a child.

Christopher Warren, 34, a former police officer in Beaverton, Oregon, was found guilty of raping a 5-year-old girl relative at his home in Vancouver, Washington.

The jury reached a unanimous verdict after about 6 hours of deliberation. Superior Court Judge Barbara Johnson remanded him into the custody until sentencing.

Warren’s attorney, Louis Byrd Jr., said that Warren was being framed by his former wife, Dina Sanchez, who coached the little girl into making the allegations because she was bitter over Warren’s decision to divorce her and to be with another woman.

However, the 6-year-old girl took the stand at trial and testified that Warren inserted a pencil in her private parts.

Prosecutor Camara Banfield said that there was no evidence that the allegations were an act of revenge. She said the child’s story remained the same throughout the investigation even when she met with a doctor.

Dr. Kimberly Copeland testified that when he examined the child two weeks after the allegations there was no sign of sex abuse.

However, the girl told the doctor “It hurt when I went to the bathroom once.” Warren is no longer employed by the Beaverton Police Department.
