Who watches the watchmen?: Ohio cop accused of using police wifi to trade child porn on Kik

Who watches the watchmen?: Ohio cop accused of using police wifi to trade child porn on Kik
Samuel Kurp

26-year-old Samuel Kurp was a police officer for the village of Elmore, Ohio. He recently resigned from his post after his arrest for allegedly sharing child porn on the mobile messaging app Kik.

Kurp is not only accused of sharing child porn on Kik at his parents’ home but is also accused of using the Elmore Police Department’s wifi while on duty.

The Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The task force then contacted the FBI who was able to trace the IP addresses back to Kurp. 

Kurp was released after posting a $10,000 bond and was released into the custody of his mother. According to the provisions of his release, Kurp must undergo a psychiatric evaluation, will be under house arrest while wearing a GPS monitor, will have no access to the internet, and must have no contact with minors. 

It will be interesting to see if he abides by the conditions of his release because if anyone would know how to get around these conditions it would be a former police officer. 

Kurp is looking at 20 years in prison if convicted. 

And as always, don’t forget that Kik is full of sex offenderspedophiles, and child porn collectors.

  1. Unbelievable that a federal judge would let Kurp out on bail. Each photo that Kurp possessed has a mandatory 5 year minimum and he surely had multiple photos. There must be more officers involved in this that Kurp will testify against.
