Why is it, whenever it's a cop, THEY get out on bond. But when it's the "Average Joe" they are usually locked up until the trial date. Double-standards here.

It should not matter who the person is that abuses another.For those of you with comments about the victim, did you know about this and not speak up? Even if this child has had problems in the past, that does not mean anyone has the right to hurt them.
And, for the Sheriff to say he just learned about this yesterday is a joke. He says this officer says he didn't do this so he must be innocent. Is that how they treat all their cases?

Well, apparently the police are watching the police since the police investigated this deputy and arrested him. So no, the police are not as bad as criminals. Believe me, they hate instances like this more than the public does because of the negativity that it shows towards the whole profession. The overwhelming majority of officers are decent people believe it or not.

I would estimate that there are over 2000 officers total in the Tidewater, Peninsula, Suffolk, Isle of Wight, Williamsburg, and Southampton areas. Out of that 2000, maybe five are arrested per year. That's .0025 percent of all the officers in the area. We would hope that every officer would stay honest and not get arrested, but the departments seem do a pretty good job at policing their own. They do a darn sight better than in some other parts of the country that's for sure. So, it's not really fair to the good officers to say that they are all bad. That's simply not true.

Oh, and the police have no control as whether someone gets bond. That's up to the magistrate or the judge.

Sad..... Isle of Wight needs a house cleaning starting with the Sheriff. Once the charges have been placed, he should take his gun and badge and keep him away till the case goes to trial. Concerns me he will be on desk duty.....

Don't judge a book by it's cover. He is innocent until proven guilty. People are so naive when it comes to media stories, just because it may come from the media does not make it legit or even factual.

I have confidence in our Police Force anymore. I may not stop if I am pulled over because they may attack. The integrity and ethnics are gone!

Let the evidence speak for itself. If this man is guilty I hope he gets the most severe punishment allowed. However, what if this man is innocent ? There are circumstances and situations that have taken innocent people and prosecuted them for crimes they have not committed. Even if this man is innocent and all charges are dropped he will live as a branded sex offender in the eyes of all. So regardless of any decisions his life is good as over.
