WEWOKA, Okla. – A former Oklahoma police officer is headed to prison for assaulting a 15-year-old girl.
Authorities say Trever Blackwell pleaded guilty to a felony count of second-degree rape.
The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, which learned that Blackwell had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl while he was on duty between August 2011 and January 2012.
The crimes took place while the victim was participating in the Wewoka Police Department’s Explorer Program.
Some of the crimes even occurred while the victim was riding in Blackwell’s patrol car as part of the program.
He was sentenced to five years in prison and 10 years of supervised probation.
Blackwell also must register as a sex offender.
