BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT: A police officer has been accused of raping an 11-year-old girl, the daughter of his family friend. Ivan Delgado allegedly pulled the girl into his bedroom and told her he found her “so sexy”. On Monday, September 21, the 52-year-old was asked to not meet or contact the victim or her family.

According to reports, the child told the state Department of Children and Families that the suspect touched her inappropriately several times. But the seriousness of the sexual abuse had increased recently. She added that on the day of the incident she was at Delgado’s house when he dragged her into his bedroom and raped her as she pleaded with him to stop.

Reports also stated that the child took the help of a doll to demonstrate to investigators what was done to her by the accused, who she described as “a very nice person who is sick in the head”. The alleged rape came to light after the young girl’s mother called the state Department of Children and Families on August 29, who then notified the Bridgeport police department.

When Delgado, a member of the Bridgeport Police Department for 13 years, was questioned by fellow officers about the accusations, he denied them and said he had never been alone with the victim. After being arrested on Friday, September 18, he has been charged with three counts of first-degree sexual assault and three counts of risk of injury to a minor. Later he was freed on a $250,000 bond, but has been placed on administrative leave without pay. Acting Police Chief Rebeca Garcia said: “After consideration and review of all preliminary information, I have placed him on administrative leave without pay. Sergeant Delgado’s hearing will be within 10 business days.” A case for a plea has been scheduled for October 6.

In another incident, a pedophile doctor was sent to jail for raping his own daughter for a decade and forcing her to have an abortion after she got pregnant. The 74-year-old man raped the child since she was eight and continued doing it until she turned 18. The rapist was awarded 16-and-a-half years behind bars for the two charges of indecent assault and incest. He will get parole only after serving 11-and-a-half years in jail.

While sentencing the man, Judge Michael Tinney told him, “Your conduct was shameful and evil. It was totally destructive and perverse. You should be totally ashamed of yourself, more ashamed than you actually are. You betrayed every duty you owed to her as a father. You did that for close to a decade.” The judge added: “You have, simply, deliberately exploited and debased your daughter through all the formative portions of her childhood and adolescence... caused vast harm to someone who it was your duty to love, nurture and protect.”

As per reports, the victim confronted her father as an adult in a recorded phone call. For all the wrong things that happened to her, she blamed her father and later told police it “would have been helpful if she resisted but she was too accepting and passive”.
