A Texas police officer and his wife were charged Wednesday for allegedly recording themselves having sex with a 17-year-old girl, according to a report.
The Georgetown cop, Samuel Tejeda, and his wife, Ashley Tejeda, turned themselves in on Wednesday after local police and the Texas Rangers began investigating the allegations last week. The couple faces two counts of sexual performance by a child — a second-degree felony in Texas.
Arrest affidavits obtained by KXAN in Austin allege that Tejada had sex with the teenager multiple times in her backyard and the couple’s home in Jarrell, Texas.
The station reports that the 17-year old is related to one of Tejeda’s coworkers at the Georgetown Police Department.
In one affidavit cited by KXAN, Tejada’s wife Ashley admitted to having sex and recording the teenager, but she deleted the video after finding out that she was under investigation.
Tejada graduated from the police academy in January 2017 and started his current job at the Georgetown Police Department in March 2018. He had no previous disciplinary record.
