Pennsylvania Police Officer Raped Same Boy His Father Abused

David-Turkos-WNEP

A former Pennsylvania police officer will be sentenced this week after accepting a plea deal in a child rape case — three years after his father was sentenced for abusing one of the same boys.

David Turkos pleaded guilty last month to misdemeanor charges after investigators accused him of violently raping two brothers over a seven-year period, beginning in 2001, reported The Citizens’ Voice.

The 44-year-old Turkos, a former Dupont police officer, threatened to hurt their mother and pets or take away their toys if they revealed the abuse.

One of the boys told police that Turkos choked him and used zip ties to restrain him during the abuse, and investigators said the former police officer held a hand over his mouth to muffle his screams.

“I hope you die — you’re a piece of crap,” Turkos told one of the boys, according to police.

The older boy testified during an April 2016 hearing that Turkos frequently pointed his gun at the brothers to frighten them, sometimes while on duty.

Turkos — who has a criminal record dating back to 2008 — agreed to plead guilty in June to misdemeanor corruption of minors charges after prosecutors agreed to withdraw two other charges, involuntary sexual intercourse with a child and indecent assault of a person under 13.

The two misdemeanor charges each carry a possible five-year prison term.

He remains free on $50,000 bond until his sentencing on Tuesday.

Joseph Turkos, the former officer’s father, also admitted to a misdemeanor count of corruption of minors in August 2014 after he was charged with sexually assaulting one of the same boys.

The elder Turkos was sentenced to three months to five years in state prison.
