Thank you, Officer Kroutil! Your exemplary work in this case put a very dangerous man behind bars where he belongs.

He wasn't "having sex" with her, he was raping her.
An adult can't 'have sex' with a child, it is by definition rape.
That police officer rescued a child living in hell. Do you know how rare that is?
My heart goes out to all children, the ones in Pleasanton and all over, who are being sexually abused right now, while adults turn a blind eye.
It's so unusual for an adult to choose to see the signs of child abuse.
I highly admire this police officer.
And the child rapist actually got a lengthy sentence; that's rare, too.
If only judges, police and all adults were this protective of children.
