(Scroll down for video) A female police officer was arrested after she had sex with a young girl more than 30 times.
The former Oklahoma police officer is accused of sexual offenses against the 14-year-old girl.
The victim’s grandmother found evidence of an inappropriate relationship on the victim’s phone.
21-year-old Courtney Breanne Schlinke was arrested on 16 counts of rape, 9 counts of lewd acts with a child under 16 and 8 counts of oral sodomy.
Investigators said that the victim’s family went to the police after discovering photos and text messages between her and Schlinke on the girl’s phone.
The two communicated for almost a year. The victim’s grandmother said that Schlinke is “very slick” as she befriended the family so that she can be close to the child.
The 14-year-old girl is now in therapy. Schlinke has allegedly published numerous photos of herself and the victim, whom she referred to as her “girlfriend.”
Schlinke worked as a police officer at the time of the relationship. She tweeted messages such as “I forget your age sometimes” and “I don’t wanna hide you anymore.”
Investigators monitored Schlinke’s activities for one month before she was arrested. She resigned from her job for a personal matter one week before she was arrested.
Schlinke remains in the Oklahoma County jail on $1.1 million bond.
