Cop Repeatedly Raped 16-Year-Old Homeless Girl While On-Duty, Prosecutors Say

A so-called outreach police officer in Massachusetts has been indicted on charges he repeatedly raped a homeless 16-year-old while on-duty working for Lowell Police Department’s outreach program, according to the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office.

Lowell police officer 49-year-old Kevin Garneau was charged with two counts of rape in connection with several incidents, which the DA’s office says happened while officer Garneau was working with the city’s program geared toward providing assistance for homeless individuals and people with substance abuse issues.

The victim told investigators Garneau entered her tent, which the program provided and told her there were warrants out for her arrest.

However, Garneau told the victim he would not arrest her in exchange for sex.

Garneau allegedly sexually assaulted the victim several more times in the months following the initial assault, according to WCVB.

Garneau worked as a member of the Community Opioid Outreach Program, developed by Lowell police, fire and EMS.

“”I’m astonished and deeply disappointed. I acted as soon as we were made aware of these allegations. This is not what the men and women of the Lowell PD represent,” Lowell Superintendent of Police Raymond Richardson said in a statement provided by the department.

Officer Garneau was indicted by a Middlesex grand jury on Wednesday, according to WCVB.

He was placed on leave in May, when an internal affairs investigation began and is due back in court July 23.

Officer Garneau, who resides in Pelham, New Hampshire, has been working for the Lowell Police Department for 19 years.

He was released on his own personal recognizance, meaning he did not have to pay a bond to be released from jail, and given a GPS monitor and ordered to stay away from the victim, according to Boston 25.

Allegations about the incident came to light in January 2019.

However, Garneau was not indicted until June 26.

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.
