The New York Police Department (NYPD) is charged with protecting society by preventing crimes from happening and catching criminals. However, an NYPD police officer, 39-year-old, Vladimir Krull, has abused his position after being charged and convicted of raping and sexually assaulting his girlfriend’s daughter on numerous occasions. The list of offenses is long, with Mr. Krull being found guilty of multiple counts of rape, sexual abuse, committing a criminal sexual act as well as three incidences of endangering the welfare of a child.
The victim, who was 13 years old at the time of the assault, had lost her father just one year prior to the incident. In a further horrific turn of events, in 2013, Mr. Krull kissed the young girl on the lips just a few weeks after she started eight grade. After kissing the victim, Mr. Krull raped her on at least two occasions, once in the girl’s home and again in a car. Both cases of rape occurred between November 2013 and February 2014.
When the young girl testified against Mr. Krull, she revealed another two incidences, the fourth and final incident was a sick anniversary of the day Mr. Krull had first kissed the girl. The third occasion recounted by the victim took place in June 2014. When the girl's school hosted a Father/ Daughter brunch, Mr. Krull was invited to the event with the unnamed girl in place of her deceased father. At some stage of the event, Mr. Krull took the young girl to his car and forced her to give him oral sex.
Mr. Krull was arrested after the victim’s mother notified police at the precinct he worked at. Outrageously, Mr. Krull will only serve three years behind bars for each of the three major crimes he has committed. He will also be required to register as a sex offender and will be monitored for five years following his release. Mr. Krull’s lawyer, Roger Blank, was satisfied with the sentence issued by the jury, despite believing there wasn’t enough forensic evidence available to enforce conviction. Immediately after his arrest, Mr. Krull was suspended without pay and subsequently released from service as the investigation and trial unfolded.
