A Los Angeles police officer has been charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Robert Cain (dob 4/17/86) was charged late yesterday in case BA459344 with two counts each of oral copulation of a person under the age of 16, lewd acts upon a child and unlawful sexual intercourse. Cain is scheduled to be arraigned today in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.

Deputy District Attorney David Reinert of the Justice System Integrity Division is prosecuting the case.

Cain befriended the girl who was a Los Angeles police cadet, the prosecutor said. On June 14, Cain is accused of sexually assaulting the girl during three separate incidents at three different locations.

If convicted as charged, Cain faces a possible maximum sentence of seven years and eight months in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.
