Officer charged with sex abuse

A U.S. Capitol Police officer has been charged with sexual abuse after he told authorities that he made videotapes of himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl who said she was working as a prostitute for a Maryland high school football coach.

According to court documents, Sgt. Michael Malloy told authorities that he and Arron Burroughs videotaped themselves engaging in sexual acts at Sgt. Malloy’s home in Charles County, Md.

Sgt. Malloy has been charged with first-degree child sex abuse while armed.

U.S. Capitol Police could not be reached for comment late Saturday.

The teen said that on numerous occasions she was taken by Mr. Burroughs from Maryland to the District, the documents said.

On one occasion, she said, Mr. Burroughs took her to meet Sgt. Malloy so they could engage in sexual acts in Mr. Burroughs’ car, the documents said.

Sgt. Malloy later paid Mr. Burroughs, according to the documents.

Mr. Burroughs also has been charged with sexually abusing the girl.

Sgt. Malloy is due in court today for a bond hearing.

Glitches found in foster system

A test run of a state computer system designed to keep track of state foster children has uncovered serious flaws.

The monitoring system — called “Chessie” — has been in the works since 1997 and is nearly three years behind schedule.

The price tag was originally estimated to be $26 million, but that has risen to $67 million.

Rebecca Bridgett, acting executive director of the state Social Services Administration, told the Baltimore Sun that the system will enable the state to make faster and better decisions about the welfare of children in Maryland.

It is in use in Harford and Eastern Shore counties, and is expected be in use statewide by the end of the year.

But in a memo obtained by the Baltimore Sun, the director of Harford County’s Department of Social Services wrote that flaws with the system “result in the waste of resources, and lead to the frustration of end users.”
