Cop Sentenced to 150 Days in Jail for Repeatedly Raping his Friends’ Child

Woodburn cop Daniel Kerbs, 29, was sentenced to 150 days in jail and five years of probation by Washington County Judge Charles Bailey.

Two months before, Kerbs admitted to sexually abusing a girl under the age of 16 and soliciting sex online from the daughter of a family friend.

Police reports say Kerbs knew the girl through her family and was once considered friend of the victim’s family.

Kerbs was arrested on July 27, 2015, and booked on 13 sex crimes against a minor including sex counts of third-degree sodomy, six counts of second-degree sexual abuse and one count of first degree online sexual exploitation of a child.

Kerbs repeatedly abused the girl from 2013-2014, according his indictment, which explains how Kerbs solicited the girl online for sex and followed through with steps to meet her on various occasions without the family knowing.

He was only busted after an 18-year-old girl, his victim, contacted Tigard police during the summer of 2017 and reported she’s been raped by Kerbs years earlier.

Washington County Judge Charles Bailey sentenced Kerbs to jail time that’s less than typical for raping a child, but stipulated in his agreement that hinges on Kerb’s ability to enter into rehabilitative treatment.

Judge Bailey also ordered Kerbs, who is required to register as a sex offender, to stay away from minors and to pay for his victim’s therapy and counseling, according to OregonLive.

The sentence was so ridiculous, even Kerbs’ former police chief, Woodburn Police Chief Jim Ferraris, said the lack of justice provided by the court was ‘unfortunate.’

“It’s disappointing at best,” he said, adding that Kerbs was a sworn officer for his department when he “chose to commit these child sex crimes.”

The day before he was arrested, officer Kerbs was placed on paid administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation.

Following his arrest, Kerbs spent a week in jail before being released on a $140,000 bond with the requirement he stay away from minor children.

Kerbs, who worked for the Woodburn Police since since January 2015, resigned as a patrol officer in March of 2018.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
