Cop Sentenced to 150 Days in Jail for Repeatedly Raping his Friends' Child

An Oregon judge sentenced a cop for sexually abusing a girl under the age of 16.

Woodburn cop Daniel Kerbs, 29, was sentenced to 150 days in jail and five years of probation by Washington County Judge Charles Bailey.

Two months before, Kerbs admitted to sexually abusing a girl under the age of 16 and soliciting sex online from the daughter of a family friend.

Police reports say Kerbs knew the girl through her family and was once considered friend of the victim's family.

Kerbs was arrested on July 27, 2015, and booked on 13 sex crimes against a minor including sex counts of third-degree sodomy, six counts of second-degree sexual abuse and one count of first degree online sexual exploitation of a child.

Kerbs repeatedly abused the girl from 2013-2014, according his indictment, which explains how Kerbs solicited the girl online for sex and followed through with steps to meet her on various occasions without the family knowing.

He was only busted after an 18-year-old girl, his victim, contacted Tigard police during the summer of 2017 and reported she's been raped by Kerbs years earlier.

Washington County Judge Charles Bailey sentenced Kerbs to jail time that's less than typical for raping a child, but stipulated in his agreement that hinges on Kerb's ability to enter into rehabilitative treatment.

Judge Bailey also ordered Kerbs, who is required to register as a sex offender, to stay away from minors and to pay for his victim's therapy and counseling, according to OregonLive.

The sentence was so ridiculous, even Kerbs' former police chief, Woodburn Police Chief Jim Ferraris, said the lack of justice provided by the court was 'unfortunate.'

"It's disappointing at best," he said, adding that Kerbs was a sworn officer for his department when he "chose to commit these child sex crimes."

The day before he was arrested, officer Kerbs was placed on paid administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation.

Following his arrest, Kerbs spent a week in jail before being released on a $140,000 bond with the requirement he stay away from minor children.

Kerbs, who worked for the Woodburn Police since since January 2015, resigned as a patrol officer in March of 2018.

"Kerb's ability to enter into rehabilitative treatment."

There is NO rehabilitating child rapists...you can only remove them from the gene pool.

I mean was this consensual sex, like was it statuary rape? I’m not saying that’s fine but it might explain the 150days BS! Otherwise they may need to do some digging on this judge cause he sure as hell ain’t on the victims side! Friend or not if I found out u raped my daughter, wife or mother, I’m gonna cut ur manhood off! Then I’m gonna shove it & a sac of marbles down ur throat! Hang u upside down from a tree and beat u like a piñata! ALL DAY LONG!

I won't even comment on how I feel about this situation as it concerns both the "Badge Bully" Daniel Kerbs and Judge Charles Bailey... because if I did openly say how I feel (especially when it comes to the Judge), I'm afraid the cops where I live would be breaking down my door at 3am and hauling me off to jail. Rail Car Fan (P.S.) At least I can't be arrested for my thoughts as long as I keep them to myself.)

Shut up. This particular case had nothing to do with race so why bring it up? You're racist ass is exactly why we can't hold these bastards accountable because you'll focus on the 1 out of 100 cases that isn't race related.

It's been proven Cosby did rape if not all, but many women. They aren't just allegations.

Think this is sick? compare it to a baby raper and a "dope head". Ive literally sat in a court room and watched a judge give a man 10 yrs probation on 14 counts of child rape then the 2nd person to get sentenced was a guy who got caught with one gram of dope and he got sentenced to 8 years .............. seems backward to me

Why are you all surprised, I don't even have to play the Race Card on this one, it's Obvious...did you guys see the story about the White Cop who admitted that he falsefied documents to send a Black guy to jail for drugs after the FBI told the Department that it was the WRONG GUY...but it wasn't until the Cop got BUSTED fod Drugs and served 18 months, and the guy he falsely accussed spent 4 years away from his son, somehow he had a come to Jesus moment (Gtfoh) and now they both are friends and writing a book together....I would've POPPED that Fukin Nazi on SITE....🔫🔫🔫

The only thing out of the ordinary is the cop got caught.

Why do police departments let criminal cops resign?
