Woman, 18, Claims LAPD Officer Fathered Her Child When She Was Underage

LOS ANGELES (CBS2) — Serene Branson reported on the CBS 2 News at 11 p.m. about a woman, now 18, who says a Los Angeles Police Department officer got her pregnant when she was underage.

The woman, known as Maria, also claims the officer asked her to abort the baby. She is now the mother of a four month old son, KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz reports.

The woman reportedly gave the LA Weekly a copy of a paternity test that showed the officer was the father of the baby with a 99% probability.

Reportedly the officer told LA Weekly he knew Maria, but that’s all he wanted to say about the situation. Adding, it was a personal matter.

The woman says she turned to another police officer for help and advice and he suggested she report the other officer to Internal Affairs. The second officer was, she says, investigated instead.

The second officer, now her boyfriend, lost his job and now works as security guard.

The LAPD would not comment, saying that this is a personnel issue. The officer the woman claims got her pregnant is still employed at the Hollenbeck Station and has not been charged with any crime.

      Oh…you must be talking about the cop.

    • Bob A

    This little hooked, needs a reality check first its one Hollenbeck cop than another. Wow if I’m in her predicament and have a a boyfriend that got fired I’m sure I would blame someone else. Gotta get that welfare check one way or another!!!!!!!!! Hohoho and I’m not referring to Santa Claus.

    • Chris Blair

      Why are you solely attacking the woman in this story?

      Your post makes absolutely no mention of the cop who alledgedly had unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor – is that not a concern for you?

      I guess I could probably make a valid assumption that maybe you have found yourself in a similar predicament and this story has brought back a “flood of bad memories” to you???

  • Alan Hart

    The only difference between LA street gangs and LAPD is the uniforms.

  • Jose

    I dont understand why people assume that she’s a hood rat? Nothing in the article states either her ethnicity, socioeconomic status, where she lives, or anything else. For all you know she could be some Anglo woman from Brentwood.

    • Chris Blair

      I don’t understand why everyone is attacking this woman and not the cop who impregnated her, the LAPD Internal Affairs department, Chief Charlie Beck and the LAPD as a whole.

      Apparently having unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and impregnating her is A-OK with quite a few people at the LAPD.

      Have you heard her speak? Sounds like an E. LA hood rat, her and her family are looking for revenge or big cash. I would investigate some of the other family members for prison time served and the immediate family also. Another ILLEGAL ALIE n looking for an easy ride.

  • Jeff

    Her name is Serene. Trust me, she’s black

    • Idiots

      Serene Branson is the news REPORTER, you silly fool. Read the whole article, then comment.

      • Oink OINK!

        To make such brash judgments shows how ignorant people are. This article states nothing in regards to her ethnicity or her financial back round. Cops are PIGS NUFF SAID!!!!!

    • Chris Blair


      FYI: Serene Branson is the name of the news reporter (see video on this same page) The 18 year old sounds hispanic (face is blacked out).

      If the allegations are true, than what is truly amazing about this story is this officer still wears a badge and carries a gun and has not appeared in a court of law to answer charges for unlawful sex with a minor.

      The burden of responsibility is on the adult … EXCEPT IF YOU’RE A COP, apparently.

      LAPD is calling this a “personal matter.” I think it’s also a criminal matter but we won’t let those “minor” (pun intended) details get in the way.

      So to sum it all up:
      Chief Beck nor LAPD Internal Affairs hasn’t ANY PROBLEMS with LAPD Officers having sexual relations with and impregnating minors.

      I guess it’s just another “perk” of being a police officer.

    • Conrad Dobler

      And the cop is named ‘Phil Garrido’….typical whitebread name…

  • c

    hood rat

  • Lis

    Why does her name sound so familiar?

  • Marco

    These articles incite rush to judgement when they give you small pieces of information. How underage? 17 and a half? I’m sure she had knowledge of what she was doing sexually with a cop.

    Not gonna take sides jus wish there was more accurate news reporting with ALL THE FACTS.

  • Chester

    It’s no secret that the LAPD protects there own.
    If the DNA is a match then, the LAPD also protects
    child molesters.

  • Detroit Lewis

    Just her first name alone says it all.

  • bee

    yeah alan hart u would say that since i bet u dont know di#@.. let me guess what do for a living?… live with mom. how about next time someone one is kickng you ass you dont call 911. see if those “LAPD gangsters” help u.

  • bee

  • swhitS

    Paternity test or not someone will have to pay!

  • Black American

    White female reporter name Serene reported this story. Idiots posting here are callling the girl a hood rat because they think the girl who got pregnant is a Black female named Serene.

    What’s scary is that some of you idiots posting without reading are voters. No wonder why LA retains the same political idiots year after year. Liberals = Hypocrites.

    • BC

      You got that right! I can’t believe some of these people vote in our elections! America is truly in a sad state of affairs.

  • ellie

    Oh, that whacky heterosexual lifestyle!!! No rules, no morals, no problem.

    • someonewhoknows

      How ignorant you are to refer “heterosexual” as a “lifestyle”. Like any of us have a choice in our sexual preference. Lifesyles are chosen fool.

  • dre

    okay now the woman comes up and says something about this. why did she keep it a secert for so long……Maybe the other guy (her boyfriend was not willing to pay for a child that was not his) And it does not matter if he is a cop or not there are a lot of people that are just in to minors every day there is some story about perverts and the such. I am moving out of los angeles can’t even watch a ball game in this town

  • Jeff is a dummy

    Jeff. Can’t you read, you big dummy?

  • Detroit Lewis is a big dummy too!

    Detroit, you are a big dummy too. What’s wrong with you fools?

  • Don't Mess with Hood Rats

    The girl is a hood rat plain and simple, the cops are both idiots and should be fired! Now this hood rat is gonna try and get a pay check from the city of LA because she’s claiming she had sex with an officer when she was 17. Now the poor tax payers are gonna have to fork out millions of dollars to this hoodie to make this whole thing go away.

  • Bill

    It’s getting pretty bad when all they can finded to report about who did this girl . so why is she crying to the news her little pit of fame .

  • what a shock

    Jeff must be a cop. Was she raped? No… Did he force her? No. The problem is they had sex he’s married and not leaving his wife. Maybe their both to blame. A 17 year old mexican with a baby…Ummm where’s the story here


    BREAKING NEWS !! jeff & detriot 2 BIG DUMMMMMMMMIES. you guys turn out to be the “” where the sun dont shine”” hole of the week.

  • Joker

    Did the cop force her to do the act….if not, what’s the big deal….it takes two. She probably wanted a man and seduced him to capture him….it didn’t work, so she gets someone else and now she wants some form of compensation from the city…….don’t worry though, I’m sure the city will dive deep into its pockets and give her a million buck.

  • LOU

    Remember Raphael Perez from Rampart? same thing, another crooked cop.

  • lucygoosey

    This story is crazy. why would she go to the paper or other cops for this. hot azzes are getting pregnant everyday by functional molesters, what the news? If she has paternity papers just file for child support, why involve all these folks. guys asking about abortions is a standard question these days.
    she can’t get welfare if she knows the name and location of father. the second officer is a strange twist but now he get his turn because she’s already knocked up.
