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.
