Police are supposed to help people, not take advantage of them. That is exactly what James Carey did when he was a Warminster cop and Volunteer Firefighter. He saw young boys who he was sexually attracted to and he used his position of authority to groom them into doing sex acts with him. In fact, to get to the children more easily, he singed up for the DARE program and helped kids who were known to get into trouble and he worked with them at his townships recreation center.
He plead no contest to five counts each of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and corruption of minors, seven counts of indecent assault, two counts each of statutory rape and statutory sexual assault and one count of aggravated indecent assault. He will do 24 1/2 to 55 years in state prison. This sentence could run for the rest of his natural born life.
There were four cases , some going back as much as 20 years. When one person, now an adult heard about the charges, he contacted police and the charges were increased. You can read more coverage of this here
