A North Carolina cop impregnated a 14-year-old girl while mentoring her in an attempt to prove that “policemen are good.”
Now Lowell police officer James Paul Blair, 51, is sitting in jail on a charge of statutory rape, according to WSOC-TV.
The girl’s mother said she was reluctant to allow Blair to become friendly with her daughter after she had run away, but allowed it because she had trust in police.
Besides, her daughter wanted to be a cop when she got older. And Blair offered to take along the girl’s little brother on outings as well along with his wife.
But then one day Blair asked the mother to keep the son at home, according to the Gaston Gazette.
And his wife was apparently not around when he took her virginity.
After learning her daughter was pregnant, the mother confronted the cop who admitted everything.
He also told her he wanted the girl to have an abortion to save his own skin.
But the girl’s mother said she does not believe in abortion.
According to WSOC-TV:
She said the veteran officer came to her home asking to connect with her 14-year-old daughter, who had run away before, and her sibling.
“To show them, ‘Hey, policemen are good,’” the mother said.
He would visit often and even took them on a trip. Then the mother discovered text messages that indicated her daughter was pregnant and the officer was the father.
