WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. — A West Columbia police officer has been charged with sending explicit photos of himself to a 13-year-old girl in Iowa.

Authorities said Wednesday 30-year-old Andrew Alan Haney had been charged with interstate commerce of obscene materials to a person under 16.

Police say Haney met the girl in Polk County, Iowa, through a social media website last month.

Authorities say they identified Haney as a suspect after he sent the girl a photo with his police badge with the state seal visible in the photo.

West Columbia Police Chief Dennis Tyndall says Haney has been fired from the force. Haney was expected in court Thursday, and it wasn’t clear if he had an attorney.

Dixieman's...

....Thumb Troll must either be from New York, a blood relative of Anthony Weiner, or just a die hard Democrat who feels compelled beyond reason to defend "his guys".

My question is "What part of

My question is "What part of his body was the badge attached to?" He was one of the police hires that slipped through the cracks, so to speak!

seenitB4- Maybe he did not

seenitB4- Maybe he did not fall for the nonsense, he may have been really "up" for it, if you know what I mean.

The people that do this are

The people that do this are sick, twisted people who feel compelled to do this because they are immature and feel inadequate. They are so desperate to do this, that they convince themselves that they won't get caught. My guess is that he'll plead that he was doing this to "help" the girl, so that she would be "safe". They always have every nutty excuse in the world.

You be da Judge!
Unpublished

Why not go to the Georgia Supreme Court web page and gaze at the opinions issued on June 17, 2013. You will see where our esteemed jerks issued an opinion reinstating an attorney who is a pedophile. Read it for yourself. In the Matter of Levin, 289 Ga. 170 (709 SE2d 808) (2011). And then they disbar someone for misusing money. Or some other trivial offense.

He didn't meet the critiria to be a pedophile. Oh, BULLFEATHERS! But all he did was misdemeanors, not felonies, so yes, he got his license back.
