Ex-Police Officer Charged With Molesting Girl

IRWINDALE, Calif. (AP) — A former Southern California police officer has been charged with molesting a 14-year-old girl in his department’s Explorer Program.

Authorities say ex-Irwindale officer Daniel Camerano began a relationship with the girl while he was an adviser to the program. The eight-year department veteran also allegedly sent sexually suggestive text messages to another female Explorer.

He’s charged with a half-dozen counts, including a felony of using a minor for sex acts, and faces nearly 5 ½ years in prison if convicted.

Camerano, who resigned this week, was arrested Wednesday but is free on bail.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether he’d obtained an attorney.
