Oregon Cop Arrested For Sexual Corruption of Minor

Two months after being arrested for the sexual corruption and luring of a minor, a 22-year veteran Oregon police officer resigned on May 22, 2012.

Scott E. Elliott, 50, worked as a Portland Police Bureau (PPB) Officer for 22 years, most recently as a member of PPB's Sex Offender Registration Detail, which is responsible for helping sex offenders register. He has also served as a firearms instructor for the department's police cadets.

So Elliott's co-workers were undoubtedly shocked when Multnomah County Sheriff s Department deputies arrested him at work on March 29, 2012, for online sexual corruption of a child and luring of a minor.

Elliott was arrested, stripped of his police powers and placed on paid administrative leave, after authorities intercepted his online communications with a minor female, according to police and prosecutors.

Elliott was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on $500,000 bail, on March 29, 2012. He has remained in custody since his arrest.

On April 9, 2012, Elliott pleaded not guilty to online sexual corruption of a child, three counts of luring a minor and four counts of encouraging child sexual abuse. His trial was scheduled to begin May 22, 2012, but it was postponed. We will report on significant developments in the case.
