The FBI charged Hammock with soliciting sexually explicit images from a minor.

According to NBC Miami, federal authorities began investigating Hammock in mid-February. An undercover FBI agent had spotted an alleged post by Hammock on an app that’s often used to find individuals for in-person sexual encounters.

The FBI agent was posing as a 14-year-old girl, the agent talked with Hammock for roughly a month. Most of the conversations included sexual activity.

In a conversation, Hammock is accused of writing:

“Let’s not make age an issue. I think you’re hot. I feel like peeking and being peeked at by a younger girl.”

Court documents say Hammock sent pictures of his genitals to the FBI agent and also repeatedly asked for nudes despite admitting he was married.

Following his arrest, Hammock was placed on administrative leave without pay. Hammock is a 17-year veteran of the Margate Police Department.

​The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida will prosecute his case.

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.
