Authorities said the officer accused in the case was previously reported for abuse. In 2013, the Lake Forest Park Police Department, Child Protective Services and OPA opened a case, but prosecutors later declined to pursue it because of insufficient evidence. A CPS investigation concluded the allegations were unfounded. The results of OPA's administrative investigation were inconclusive.
Investigators said there was no reason to believe the officer is a threat to the public or that anyone outside his family would make additional allegations of abuse.
