Baltimore Police Officer Pleads Guilty To Sexting Teenage Boy


A Baltimore officer has pleaded guilty to sexting with a York County, Pennsylvania teen, the York Dispatch reports.

Timothy Rae George, 26, pleaded guilty Friday in the York County Court of Common Pleas as part of a deal with prosecutors. Defense attorney Chris Ferro told the paper that other charges will be dropped at his sentencing, where he’ll face six to 23 months in York County Prison and three years of probation.

“I think we’re a step closer to resolving this unfortunate situation,” Ferro told the paper. “My client is beyond remorseful for his actions and lack of good judgment. He’s still a young man, and I think this will be a tough, but productive, learning experience for him.”

George was charged with three felonies in November, and the police department immediately suspended him without pay. He’s now admitted to having contact with a 15-year-old boy in Jackson Township from late August to late September. The teen’s father found him having a phone conversation with George, one of many phone and text exchanges. Video surveillance saw George with the victim at a high school football game, and the victim told police he had sent George a video of himself masturbating.

George joined the department in 2014 and remains suspended without pay, a spokesman confirmed. However, Ferro told the Dispatch he plans to leave the department anyway.

A judge ordered George to undergo an evaluation to determine if he should be deemed a sexually violent predator under state law, but Ferro said he doesn’t expect that to happen. Sentencing is set for Oct. 3 to allow enough time for that evaluation to be completed.

George also faces Baltimore city and county assault charges. A trial in the Baltimore County case is set for Sept. 28. He has a July 20 appearance coming up in city district court on the charges there, according to online court records. He allegedly assaulted his husband, Brandon Smith. Smith later suggested to local media that he lied to police, but this week emailed a Dispatch reporter, saying that the assault may in fact have happened.

“I wanted to make things look better for him up there in York, PA and make the charges in Baltimore County go away,” he wrote. “I succeeded.”
