Western Kentucky police officer charged with sex abuse

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky State Police have charged a Hopkinsville police officer with five counts of first-degree sex abuse.

Police said in a statement that 32-year-old Ian L. Damber was arrested Friday after an investigation that began Wednesday stemming from a complaint alleging he had sexual contact with a minor.

Hopkinsville police said Damber resigned from the department Friday after being suspended due to the charges. He had been an officer with the department since 2013.

State police say he was taken to the Christian County Detention Center. Online jail records don’t say whether he has an attorney.
