(Scroll down for video) A New York police officer betrayed the trust of the public and a child.

Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark announced that the New York City police officer has been indicted on sex offenses and other charges stemming from patronizing an underage girl for prostitution and inducing her to perform sex acts in videos.

The officer was charged with 67 counts, including numerous
sex offenses, for alleged sexual acts with the child.

The defendant preyed on the vulnerable young woman and recorded his demeaning and dehumanizing acts.

New York City Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill said: “The nature and scope of the charges in this indictment are egregious. The fact that the defendant is an NYPD officer
shows an unconscionable violation of his oath to uphold the law and protect the public.”

Raul Olmeda, 40, of the Bronx, who was assigned to the 42nd Precinct but has been on modified duty, was indicted on 15 counts of sexually motivated felony, five counts of use of child in a sexual performance, five counts of third-degree rape, four counts of third-degree criminal sexual act, nine counts of third-degree aggravated patronizing a minor for prostitution, third-degree patronizing a person for prostitution, five counts of endangering the welfare of a child, five counts of promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child, five counts of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, five counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child, five counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child, fourth-degree tampering with a witness, official misconduct and unauthorized use of a computer.

Olmeda was arraigned before Bronx Supreme Court Justice Steven Barrett and bail was set at $250,000.

If convicted of the top charge, he faces up to 15 years in prison.

According to the investigation, Olmeda allegedly repeatedly paid a teenage girl for sex and recorded her in multiple
sexual acts.

While executing a search warrant on Olmeda’s home, authorities seized numerous hard drives as well as a computer, cell phone, and other electronic media.

Olmeda committed the crimes while his fiancee was battling cancer.

Olmeda denied all the allegations, saying the girl made up the stories.

Olmeda was stripped of his gun and badge and was placed on modified duty.
