New Information on Teen Sex Abuse Tied to Investigation of Police Officer

CINCINNATI (WKRC) — The investigation that brought criminal charges against a Cincinnati Police Officer takes another twist. Officer Darrell Beavers is accused of possessing nude photos of a 17-year-old girl. Wednesday morning the teenager’s stepfather faced a judge on a charge of unlawful sexual conduct with her. Detectives say the charge against 37-year-old Timothy Pelzel grew out of their investigation of Beavers. Pelzel is accused of having sexual contact with his stepdaughter in 2010, when she was 14-years-old. The girl is now 17. Detectives say he is the one who contacted police about the photos he found on her cellphone. A judge set Pelzel’s bond at 25,000 dollars. If he does get out of jail, he’ll have to wear an electronic monitoring device.
