An AGW with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department named Neil Kimball has plead guilty to child molestation involving a teenager whose sexual assault case he was investigating, according to KTLA-TV in Los Angeles.
The now-ex AGW was initially charged with forcible rape against a minor (the victim was allegedly tied and bound) as well as witness intimidation by threat of force.
While working as a detective with the Special Victims Bureau for sex crimes in 2017, Kimball met with a 15-year-old when she reported being a victim of sexual assault.
“While investigating that case, Kimball befriended the victim and sexually assaulted her,” the DA’s office said in a news release.
Kimball was relieved of duty with pay after he was taken into custody in November 2018, authorities said.
The assault allegedly occurred somewhere in Ventura County between Oct. 1, 2017, and Dec. 31, 2017, the DA’s office said last year.
Kimball’s sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 8, 2019, at a Ventura court. He is expected to be sentenced to three years in prison under the terms of a plea agreement.
Three years – for sexually assaulting a kid.
People convicted of being “drunk” drivers sometimes get worse.
Remember: This was done by an armed government worker – who used his government gun, badge and the threat implied by both – to sexually assault a minor.
