Former Officer Robert Lodwick Pleads Guilty to Soliciting Sex from Teen

A former Youngstown city police officer faces sentencing after soliciting sex from a 14-year-old girl and taking nude pictures of her.

41-year-old Robert Lodwick pleaded guilty in Mahoning County Common Pleas court to charges of importuning, pandering obscenity, and illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material.

The prosecutor is recommending a sentence of 18 months in jail when he is sentenced at 10:00 a.m. on June 4.

Lodwick was a Detective Sergeant with the Youngstown police department until he was fired in June after the allegations surfaced.

I see you choose to focus on the very few of Law Enforcement who make mistakes in their lives. In doing so, I see you fail to account for the 99 per cent of Law Enforcement who are great people and save lives every day. I think there is an agenda here.

Very FEW??? Are you kidding me? Everyday across the US some officer is making 'mistakes'. It's time they got their act together. There are too many officers committing heinous crimes, and getting away with doing so.. It's time to hold them accountable. The 'good' officers have to start turning in the 'bad' ones... Then maybe people will start trusting law enforcement again.
