Bakersfield Cop Accused of Child Porn Charges

February 18, 2010

cbs47.tv: Bakersfield Cop Accused of Child Porn Charges.

Former Bakersfield Police Officer Christopher Bowersox was in a Fresno courtroom on Wednesday to face charges of child pornography.

Graphic new details have been revealed in the case of a former Bakersfield Police Officer facing child pornography charges.

Christopher Bowersox is a former Bakersfield Police Detective and is accused of possessing and distributing pornographic videos, as well as hundreds of images of young boys on his home computer.

Court documents outline an internet relationship between Bowersox and a Florida man. The two reportedly shared pornographic pictures and had graphic chats, fantasizing about young boys.

Bakersfield’s Police Chief Greg Williamson calls the arrest shocking and embarrassing. Chief Williamson said, “He was well liked within the department and I think that the allegations that have been brought against him have just floored most of the members of the Bakersfield Police Department.”

If convicted of possessing and distributing child pornography, Bowersox faces a maximum of 30 years in prison.(and registration as a sex offender, of course, right?)

bakersfieldnow.com: Further review found conversations between the screen names “cbowersox” and “zdasher18” containing multiple references to the raping, injuring and killing children.

At one point, the two discussed a way to have sex with a child. Screen name “zdasher18” wrote, “I know it can’t happen here, it’s got to be somewhere else with a bought kid or something. We’d definitely get caught if we did it here.” To which “cbowersox” responded, “Cambodia … Thailand … Mexico … deep deep Mexico.”

The pair also talked about committing murder/suicide if they should be discovered by law enforcement.
