BALTIMORE, Md. - A Baltimore City police officer was indicted Wednesday on charges he allegedly had a sexual relationship with an underage girl between June 2005 and Sept. 2006, according to the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s office.
The Baltimore City Grand Jury indicted Officer Frederick Allen on him with two counts of sexual child abuse of a minor and third-degree sex offense for allegedly having a sexual relationship with an under-age female victim between June 2005 and September 2006.
"We are dedicated to investigating and prosecuting officers who breach the public trust by violating the law," State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein said in a statement. "This indictment is another example of the BPD working with the State's Attorney's Office to ensure the integrity of the Department.
Baltimore City police Commissioner Anthony Batts also released a statement.
“Fred Allen's alleged actions are shameful and do a great disservice to the hard work of the men and women of the Baltimore Police Department," Batts said.
An arraignment date has not yet been set.
