VANCOUVER -- A Beaverton police officer pleaded not guilty in a Clark County Court Thursday to the sexual assault of a 5-year-old child.
Christopher Warren, 33, was arrested by SWAT officers last month and booked into the Clark County Jail on charges of first-degree rape of a child.
Warren was released on bond. His next hearing is scheduled for July 9.
In 2009, Multnomah County investigators looked into allegations of inappropriate touching of a minor dating back to when Warren was a teen. The case was dropped when the alleged victim declined to cooperate.
A year later, Warren was accused of failing to report a crime after a friend was convicted of child sex abuse. He was fired and then reinstated.
In April, Warren pleaded not guilty to unlawfully obtaining public assistance, unlawfully obtaining food stamps and theft.
Warren has been on paid administrative leave. Beaverton police Officer Mike Rowe said an internal investigation of Warren was ongoing.
