Charged with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious conduct involving a child, De los Rios made the girl strip to inspect her body for “bruising” after she was discovered talking to a 19-yaer-old boy in the backseat of a car.
“Were you having sex? What were you doing here?” the girl told police that De los Rios asked her.
“No, no, no, officer no,” the girl said according to an affidavit.
The 28-year veteran told the girl he needed to “see inside” to make sure that she was telling the truth. She was then forced to strip naked in the back of the car while he “checked” her with a flashlight.
He was released on $30,000 bond, reports CBS Miami. He faces a 15 year prison sentence and “an administrative investigation is presently being conducted, which precludes the department from speaking further on the matter,” said a Miramar police department spokesperson.
According to the News, investigators have acquired a video tape which, even though grainy, is consistent with the girl’s allegations.
“She was probably so intimidated by this police officer to even think that she had to do that,” said Miramar resident Josie Huff. “It’s disgusting. It’s just unbelievable.”
