The baby boy was rushed to hospital when he developed herpes following the controversial ancient circumcision ritual. A rash is said to have spread across the child’s genitals, buttocks, inner thighs and ankle two weeks after the procedure. An estimated 3,000 babies are circumcised each year using the method in New York City. NYC is home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel. There have been six cases of herpes among children who have had the ritual known as metzitzah b’peh performed on them since February 2015. Of the six previously undisclosed cases, two occurred last year and three in 2015. Herpes, a highly contagious viral disease which can cause blisters and ulcers. Herpes is more severe in newborn babies as their immune systems are not fully developed. Since 2000, there have been 24 cases of infant herpes linked to circumcision, leading to two deaths and two cases of brain damage.

Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap.

They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)

Chicago, IL -- Surveillance video (Click here for video) in connection with a Chicago police officer's fatally shooting 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was released today by attorneys for the teen's family. A federal judge ordered the release of footage showing the 2013 shooting today after the city withdrew its objection to its being made public. Chicago police officer Kevin Fry fatally shot Chatman Jan. 7, 2013, in broad daylight during a foot chase, according to court records. Chatman’s family had fought for the video to be released as part of a wrongful death lawsuit they filed over the shooting against the city, Fry and Chicago police officer Lou Toth, who pursued Chatman along with Fry during the foot chase. Family members have argued the video will counter the city and police’s narrative that the 17-year-old was a danger to police. IPRA concluded the officers' actions were justified because they reasonably believed Chatman was armed at the time.

Miami, FL ~ USA -- A Florida jury began weighing on Tuesday whether a man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her blood-spattered, lifeless body on Facebook committed first-degree murder. Attorneys for Derek Medina, 33, argued that he was acting in self-defense when he fired eight shots at Jennifer Alfonso, 27, in the kitchen of their Miami-area residence. The August 2013 shooting followed a fight in which she had threatened to leave, prosecutors said during closing statements. They argued that Medina retrieved a .380-caliber pistol from his bedroom and pulled the trigger repeatedly in a premeditated act of murder. "Every single shot hit her because he was aiming and he wanted her dead," said Assistant State Attorney Leah Klein in Miami-Dade County circuit court. Medina wrote on Facebook shortly before turning himself in: "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. My wife was punching me, and I am not going to stand any more with the abuse so I did what I did," he added in the post. (Click here for video)

Anthony Williams

December 26, 2009Update!

During the second week of October 2009, Administrative Law Judge William Andrew Messer upheld the firing of Dallas police officer Anthony Williams who had been repeatedly investigated for allegedly making improper advances, some of them while on duty. Here's a quick summation of his background:

In 1992, a woman told police that Williams (pictured left) fondled her while her 6-year-old child watched. In 1995, a high school student told police she'd been sleeping with him since she was 16. In 1996, investigators concluded he'd had sex with a woman while on duty. He was fired, but later reinstated after appealing the decision. Other complaints followed. In the most recent case, Felisha Taylor told investigators that she met Williams on a 911 call, that they had sex while he was on duty. Williams admitted having sex with the woman. Again, he denied having sex while on duty. He also got into an on-duty confrontation with her in the parking lot of her apartment complex in June 2008. During that exchange, Williams received a call to check on a residential burglary alarm. He never answered the call, records show.

February 22, 2009

Senior Cpl. Anthony Williams, a 20-year Dallas police veteran was fired for failing to respond to an emergency call but it is not the first time he has been fired or accused of wrongdoing, and some wonder if he will be reinstated again. Williams declined to comment. His attorney Phil Burleson Jr. said Williams is innocent of the allegation that led to his recent firing. He said the firing was "not justified."

Here's a list of the sexual misconduct complaints during Williams' career:

•»A woman in 1992 said that after Williams went to her home on a harassment call, he fondled her as her 6-year-old son watched. She said he flattered her, and they began a brief sexual relationship.
•»A woman said Williams began a sexual relationship with her 16-year-old granddaughter in 1994 after the teen called to report an attempted molestation.
•»A woman in 1996 said Williams had sex with her in a motel after he gave her a ride from a store. She said she left the area later because she was afraid he would arrest her for prostitution.

•»In all cases, Williams denied doing anything inappropriate or having sex on duty. In the 1992 case, the woman eventually stopped cooperating, and the probe ended with a finding of "unfounded." In the teen's case, Williams denied having sex until she turned 17. Authorities sought to charge him with criminal sexual assault, believing the relationship began when she was 16. But a grand jury declined to indict him, and a police internal investigation ended with an "inconclusive" finding.

•»In the 1996 case, then-Police Chief Ben Click fired Williams in 1997. But a civil service trial board reinstated him five months later.

•»On June 19, 2008, Williams was on duty when he went to her apartment complex because he believed she slashed his tires, and the loud argument witnessed by a neighbor lasted for an hour and a half. During that exchange, Williams received a call to check on a residential burglary alarm but never answered the call, records show. Investigators could not prove sexual misconduct allegations but found that he violated policy when he failed to answer the burglary alarm call, didn't devote full attention to his job and became involved in an on-duty disturbance. He was fired Jan. 29, 2009. Burleson said Williams plans to appeal.

Angel Rameriz

February 22, 2009

A Midland Independent School District police officer has been arrested and charged with two second-degree felonies; one of sexual assault of a child and one of improper student/ teacher relationship, police reported late Wednesday night. C.J. Note: The victim in this case is a 14-year old female.

Angel Ramirez, 30, (pictured left) was placed on administrative leave without pay pending an official investigation, according to a statement from the district issued Wednesday. C.J. Note: Mr. Rameriz has since been fired!

The Midland Police Department has led the investigation with “full and complete” cooperation from MISD police and district administration, officials said. The investigation stemmed from an outcry of a 14-year-old female student.

The incident allegedly occurred between September 2008 and January 2009 at a north Midland residence, police said.

Ramirez was being booked into the Midland County Detention Center at press time. Neither the MPD nor MISD Superintendent Sylvester Perez released the name of the school where Ramirez is employed.

The Chief Knew Too!

November 30, 2011

CLEVELAND (BRADLEY COUNTY) TN -- Recent court testimony indicates that Cleveland, Tenn., Police Chief Wes Snyder knew of allegations of statutory rape and drug abuse against some of his officers in 2008 but did not launch a direct investigation into the claims. The officers later were arrested, fired and pleaded guilty to sex acts with teenage girls. Testifying Nov. 17 in an employment lawsuit filed by former Cleveland detective Duff Brumley, Cleveland Assistant Police Chief Gary Hicks described a hostile work climate and said Snyder showed animosity toward Brumley leading up to the officer's 2010 firing.

While testifying about events in the department connected to Snyder, Hicks said that, before May 2008, the department had received complaints that some of its officers were having sex with teenage girls and providing them alcohol. The complaints also said the officers illegally were abusing prescription medications such as hydrocodone, Hicks testified.

Cleveland Police Chief Wes Snyder (pictured left in mugshot) called a press conference Wednesday afternoon to say that a Press article about him "was grossly inaccurate." The headline on the Tuesday article said: "Cleveland Police Chief Wes Snyder knew about claims of statutory rape against officers." The article referred to testimony given Nov. 17 by Cleveland Assistant Police Chief Gary Hicks in an employment lawsuit filed by former Cleveland detective Duff Brumley.

Chief Snyder said at the press conference:

"The incident that Mr. (Todd) South so grossly distorted was thoroughly investigated at my request. Mr. South reports that I had knowledge of drug and sexual abuse by members of this department prior to my internal affairs investigation. This is completely false. "At the time of this incident, the District Attorney’s Office, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Cleveland Police Department thoroughly investigated the alleged crimes and policy violations. The results of the investigation were submitted to me. Acting upon those facts, those individuals were dealt with according to the laws of this State and the policies of this City. No one at the administrative level, including myself, had any knowledge or participated in any cover-up as it pertained to Officers Nathan Thomas, Dennis Hughes or Jonathan Hammons. The entire 500-plus page investigation was made available to Mr. South, which he apparently chose to twist and distort for his personal agenda. Todd South’s allegations are inaccurate and totally irresponsible."

The article said in full:

"Recent court testimony indicates that Cleveland, Tenn., Police Chief Wes Snyder knew of allegations of statutory rape and drug abuse against some of his officers in 2008 but did not launch a direct investigation into the claims.

The officers later were arrested, fired and pleaded guilty to sex acts with teenage girls.

Testifying Nov. 17 in an employment lawsuit filed by former Cleveland detective Duff Brumley, Cleveland Assistant Police Chief Gary Hicks described a hostile work climate and said Snyder showed animosity toward Brumley leading up to the officer's 2010 firing.

While testifying about events in the department connected to Snyder, Hicks said that, before May 2008, the department had received complaints that some of its officers were having sex with teenage girls and providing them alcohol. The complaints also said the officers illegally were abusing prescription medications such as hydrocodone, Hicks testified.

Snyder told him to have a meeting with the accused officers and "get their attention," Hicks said.

In May 2008, Hicks said, he called the officers and their supervisors into the department training room and wrote on the board that the conduct had to stop or they would be fired. He said those in the room nodded their heads, but no one spoke of details.

No official investigation into the allegations ever was launched."

Snyder did not respond to questions related to Hick's testimony. Instead, at the request of the Press, he produced internal affairs records from an investigation into a separate incident involving the officers.

Nearly seven months after Hicks' meeting with the officers, off-duty officer Dennis Hughes shot officer Chris Mason in the hand while Mason and Officer John Hammons were at Hughes' home on duty. An investigation into the shooting revealed that officers Nathan Thomas and Hammons were using pills without a prescription. Thomas was suspended.

But the pill investigation revealed other issues. Police charged Hughes and Thomas with having sex with 14- and 16-year-old girls in November 2008 and again on Jan. 4, 2009. In July 2010, Thomas pleaded guilty to drug, forgery and statutory rape charges. The 14-year police veteran was sentenced to six years in prison and is eligible for parole after two years, records show. Hughes pleaded guilty to two counts of statutory rape and received probation, according to the Bradley County Court clerk's office.

City Manager Janice Casteel said she wasn't present at any of the meetings and directed questions to Snyder.

Jonathan Hammons

Update: March 31, 2009

Two former Cleveland police officers were in court Monday, March 30, 2009 one on charges of selling narcotics, prescription fraud and statutory rape and the other officer on perjury charges. According to reports, Nathan Thomas, 38, was arraigned in Bradley County Criminal Court on charges of selling prescription painkillers, prescription fraud and statutory rape charges. 10th Judicial District Attorney General Steve Bebb said a status hearing is now set for May 11, 2009 for Thomas. "At that time he'll have the opportunity to enter a plea or the case will go on to be tried," Bebb said.

Bebb indicated the attorney for former city police officer Jonathan Hammons, 23, filed for a pre-trial diversion in court Monday, March 30, 2009 (pictured left). Hammons was arrested Dec. 17, 2008, for allegedly lying to agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation about a shooting incident when Cleveland police officer Chris Mason was shot in the hand. The incident occurred shortly before midnight Nov. 30, 2008. Mason and Hammons were reportedly at the home of a former police officer, Dennis Hughes, 34, looking at a handgun Hughes had for sale. The gun, which was in Hughes' possession, discharged and Mason sustained a gunshot wound to the hand. The allegations are that Hughes was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time of the shooting. Hughes was also arrested and was charged with reckless endangerment, perjury and filing a false report.

Thomas was arrested Jan. 5, 2009 for allegedly selling prescription painkillers he received from Dr. James Wallace Sego and again on Feb. 19, 2009 for allegedly having sexual relations with an underage female. Dr. Sego was also arrested Dec. 18, 2008, and was charged with felony counts of illegally selling prescription painkillers and other drugs. Sego practices internal medicine and pain management. Reports indicated the 10th Judicial Drug Task Force investigated both Thomas and Sego for the past two years before their arrests. According to the indictment, Sego allegedly wrote prescriptions for hydrocodones and oxycodones for Thomas in excess of 7,000 pills in one year's time with no medical basis.

In a December 2008 interview, Drug Task Force Director Mike Hall said, "When a doctor prescribes this many pills to a patient, they become a drug dealer because this facilitates the patient in selling these painkillers. There is no reason why someone should be receiving 7,000 painkillers a year." Christi Lee Ann Cabrera, 30, a former employee of Sego's, was also arrested March 3 and was charged with with multiple counts of forgery, drug fraud and identity theft. According to the indictment, Cabrera stands accused of forging prescriptions for the purposes of obtaining hydrocodone painkillers and for forging the signature of another employee in order to receive prescriptions. The indictment indicated Cabrera committed the crimes from January 2008 to December 2008.

Dennis Hughes

February 19, 2009

CLEVELAND, TN (WCJB) - Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested Two Cleveland (Tenn.) Police Department officers indicted by the Bradley County Grand Jury.

Dennis Hughes (pictured left) was indicted on one count of Statutory Rape, two counts of Statutory Rape by an Authority Figure and three counts of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. Nathan Thomas was charged with two counts of Statutory Rape by an Authority Figure and two counts of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.

On January 5th, the District Attorney asked the TBI to investigate accusations surrounding the officers' involvement with a 16-year-old. Hughes was booked into the Bradley County Jail on $100,000. Hughes posted bond.

Nathan Thomas

July 19, 2010

What started out as a simple status hearing in Bradley County Criminal Court Tuesday resulted in a former Cleveland police officer entering a plea of guilty to seven felonies. Fourteen-year Cleveland police officer Nathan Thomas, 39, pleaded guilty to two counts of prescription fraud, possession of Schedule II narcotic (oxycodone) for resale, possession of Schedule III narcotic (hydrocodone) for resale, forgery and two counts of aggravated statutory rape, according to 10th Judicial Assistant District Attorney General Cindy Schemel. Thomas was sentenced to a total of six years in a Tennessee Department of Corrections prison. The former officer will be eligible for release after serving 30 percent of his sentence.

Thomas was first arrested Jan. 5, 2009, on charges he was selling prescription painkillers and anti-anxiety medications after a two-year investigation carried out by the 10th Judicial District Drug Task Force. Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation conducted a search warrant at Thomas’ home and reportedly found several narcotic pain medications, steroids, anti-anxiety medication and handguns.

10th Judicial Drug Task Force Director Mike Hall said the investigation into Thomas’ alleged illegal activities was difficult because it was “against a fellow officer.”

In February 2009, the former officer was indicted by the Bradley County Grand Jury on statutory rape charges. He was alleged to be sexually involved with a 14-year-old girl and a 17-year-old girl. Thomas is now a twice convicted sex offender. He will be required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.

“I really want to commend the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Task Force in their investigations in these cases. They did a great job. We’re glad for the victims who are finally able to put this to rest,” said Schemel.

“Lt. Don Williams and Sgt. Toby Norris worked very hard on this case. They put in hundreds of man hours following up on leads and conducting the investigation. I would like to thank the DA’s Office for their hard work as well. This case was difficult because it was against a fellow officer who had fallen into the trap of prescription drug addiction. Like Mr. Thomas, there are millions of people in all classes of society who get hooked on these powerful drugs. I am very proud of the men and woman in this District who work hard and put their lives on the line everyday for all citizens under their care,” said Hall.

Thomas is currently being held at the Bradley County jail. He will be moved to a TDOC facility as soon as possible.

(pictured left)Thomas was dismissed from the Cleveland police force in January while Hughes resigned a month earlier. Those actions came after an internal investigation into the shooting of another officer in his hand. He was booked on a $50,000 bond which he posted.

Authorities also arrested Thomas in January. He was charged with prescription fraud, possession of narcotics for resale and possession of narcotics.

He's accused of selling prescription medications he got by prescription from a physician.

Oscar David Gilliam

February 12, 2009

ALBANY, GA — A Dougherty County Police officer assigned to the multi-jurisdictional drug unit surrendered to Sheriff’s deputies Wednesday after being charged with the attempted rape of a woman last week, authorities say.

Oscar David Gilliam was released on bond Wednesday after surrendering himself to the Dougherty County Sheriff’s Office with his attorney, Albany Police Department Spokesperson Phyllis Banks said. Gilliam is charged with violation of oath of office, false imprisonment and sexual battery, Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek said.

The charges come a week after a 25-year-old woman told Albany Police Officers that Gilliam attempted to rape her at Superior Creek Lodge on North Slappey Boulevard where he works part time as a security guard, Banks said. The woman’s name and other identifiers are being withheld by the APD out of concern for her safety, Banks said.

Cheek said that Gilliam had been placed on administrative leave with pay pending the outcome of the investigation. "It’s our policy in situations like these to place the officers on administrative leave with pay until there is either an indictment or a conviction," Cheek said. "But, however, I have initiated the process for termination."

An employee with the DCP since 2005, Gilliam was attached to the Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit. "This kind of behavior is something we are just, frankly, not prepared to tolerate," Cheek said. Watch video here!

Michael Spilman

January 12, 2009

Allegations of sexual assault have prompted the resignation and arrest of Murray police officer Michael Spilman. A complaint led West Valley City police to book Spilman for aggravated sexual assault and forcible sexual abuse.

Spilman (pictured left), a 10-year veteran of Murray's police force, is sitting in the Davis County Jail for his own protection. Police fear possible reprisals from Salt Lake County Jail inmates recently arrested by Spilman.

Ryan Warme


April 22, 2010

BUFFALO — Suspended Niagara Falls Police Officer Ryan Warme plead guilty this afternoon to a number of drug, gun and sex crimes charges. The plea comes just days before jury selection was set to begin in the first of two trials that had been scheduled for Warme. He has been on suspension from the Falls police department. Warme was accused of violating the civil rights of three women by sexually assaulting or abusing them, using his position as a police officer to extort sexual favors from a Falls prostitute, conspiring to distribute both powdered and crack cocaine, committing federal firearms offenses and failing to arrest a known felon who was in possession of a weapon.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Arcara had ordered two trials for Warme (pictured left) one of the gun and drug charges and one on the sex crimes. Warme said he would testify in his own defense on the sex crimes, but not take the stand on the guy and drug counts. The deal reportedly came together last week and will result in a prison sentence of 10 to 11 years, with a reduction for the time he has already been jailed. Warme was arrested in December 2008 and has remained behind bars after a federal magistrate ruled he was a threat to the community.

The investigation of Warme began following citizen complaints made to Narcotics Division detectives. Federal authorities joined the probe when it became clear that Warme’s activities might be violations of U.S. civil rights laws. He was accused of attacking two women, raping one and forcing the other to commit an act of oral sex. Investigators said he also fondled a woman at a traffic stop. All of the sex crimes occurred while Warme was in uniform and on duty. Warme also was accused of buying substantial quantities of cocaine from two Niagara Falls cocaine dealers and warning those dealers of police activity that targeted them.

December 11, 2009

BUFFALO — A U.S. District Court judge is weighing whether to give suspended Falls Police Officer Ryan Warme one trial or two on charges he engaged in multiple crimes involving sex, guns and drugs while he was both on and off duty. In a spirited one hour of argument in U.S. District Court in Buffalo on Thursday, Chief District Court Judge Richard Arcara also wonder aloud whether prosecutors could meet the legal requirements of one of the charges against Warme.

Warme's defense team is seeking one trial on his so-called sex crimes and a second trial on the gun and drug charges he faces. He is accused of violating the civil rights of three women by either sexually assaulting or abusing them, using his position as a police officer to extort sexual favors from a Falls prostitute, conspiring to distribute both powdered and crack cocaine, committing federal firearms offenses and failing to arrest a known felon who was in possession of a weapon.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Hugh Scott had previously rejected Warme’s request to have several of the charges against him dismissed, but also ruled that his request for two separate trials should be considered by the judge who would handle those trials. Warme's Defense attorney argued the charge involving the prostitute should be dismissed because what occurred is not a crime under the federal Hobbs Act, which relates to obtaining property through extortion. The defense attorney told Arcara an act of oral sex is not “property.” “We argue this is coercion but not extortion,” the defense attorney said.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Anthony Bruce said, “This woman was a prostitute, doing what prostitutes do” and did not “charge” Warme “because he was a police officer and she feared him.” However, Arcara noted the Hobbs Act applies to interstate commerce and asked Bruce, “Where is the interstate (commerce)?”

“Is there proof she was a business that operated outside of New York state,” the judge asked. “I can’t imagine how you’re going to prove interstate (commerce) on this count.” Bruce replied the woman would testify she had clients who came from outside of New York to obtain her services.

Defense counsel also argued Arcara should throw out a public corruption charge against Warme that claims he deprived the citizens of Niagara Falls of his “honest services.” The federal law that creates that crime was the subject of a Supreme Court hearing on Tuesday and the justices are expected to rule on the constitutionality of the law early next year. “The government had a tough time across the board defending this statute and it may well be on life support,” defense counsel told Arcara. “The reach of the statute is overbroad. It appears there is an even money chance the statute will get tossed.” The judge suggested he might hold off on a ruling, pending the Supreme Court action.

On the issue of whether Warme is entitled to two separate trials, Daniels told Arcara his client is facing two cases, not one. Defense counsel said Warme would testify in his own defense on the sex crimes but invoke his Fifth Amendment rights relating to the gun and drug charges. “We ask the court for the right to tell our side,” defense counsel said, “the problem we have is if the sex cases are packaged with the drug charges we have a problem because we choose to exercise our Fifth Amendment rights (to refuse to answer some questions that might come from prosecutors).”

Bruce said there was no reason why Warme could not take the stand in his own defense in a single trial. “He can testify on the sex charges and if defense counsel doesn’t open the door on his examination, I won’t be able to question him on the (drug and gun charges),” Bruce said. “And the court can give an instruction to the jury (to explain Warme’s refusal to testify about those charges).” The prosecutor told Arcara that Warme should only receive one trial because, “Every count in this case, to one extent or another, is dependent on (Warme’s) position as a police officer.” Arcara told the lawyers would consider their arguments and issue a ruling.

December 3, 2008

NIAGARA FALLS, NY - A Niagara Falls police officer is facing shocking allegations of drug trafficking and sexual assault charges. The accused officer was not on duty when arrested by members of his own police department. He surrendered his badge and gun a month prior when placed on administrative leave for departmental infractions.

Terrance Flynn, U.S. Attorney said, "Obviously he's out of control." U.S. Attorney Terry Flynn says Niagara Falls Police Officer - Ryan Warme - will be arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Buffalo Federal Court.

The 27 year old officer stands accused of drug trafficking - sometimes while wearing a uniform - and forcing two women to have sex with him. "A person who would take such risks or use a firearm in uniform and commit such acts it's a disgrace to the police department," said Flynn.

In the 12 page criminal complaint, federal investigators accused Warme of forcing one woman to have oral sex, while "he had one hand on his gun." A second woman claims he raped her last year. With regard to the drug charge, Warme was allegedly purchasing cocaine from drug dealers in Niagara Falls, at one point - "two to five times a week."

Flynn said, "To think that someone sometimes in a law enforcement uniform used their power and position to take advantage of other people or sell drugs, a major problem in Niagara Falls."

News 4's Lorey Schultz asked, "How long has he been out of control?"

"Approximately one to two years. He's 27 years old so he hasn't been on the force that long," said Terry Flynn.

Niagara Falls Police initally opened the case and then brought in federal investigators. Officer Warme is the son of a retired Niagara Falls Police Captain. Investigators believe the accused threw his dad's name around, during the commission of the alleged crimes.

"Obviously at some juncture of his life I wouldn't know but he must have had respect for law enforcement, proud of what other family members did, but the allegations here are that he clearly went the wrong way," said Flynn.

So if convicted on the charges, what is the penalty? "The civil rights charges are the most extreme you can bring under federal law. He could spend the rest of his life in federal prison," said Flynn.
