A New York police officer will spend three years in jail after being found guilty of raping and sexually abusing the 13-year-old daughter of a former girlfriend.
Vladimir Krull, 39, a former police sergeant of the NYPD, was convicted of eight offences against the teenage girl on three separate occasions, including two counts of rape, three counts of sexual abuse, two counts of committing a criminal sexual act and one count of endangering the welfare of a child, the New York Times reports.
The abuse started in September 2013 when Krull first kissed the victim on the mouth. He was found guilty of raping her in two separate attacks, once in her home and once in his car.
The teenager was the daughter of Krull’s then girlfriend. The former police sergeant was also convicted of forcing the girl to perform a sex act on him in his car after a father-daughter breakfast at her school in June 2014, the New York Daily News reported.
Prosecutors pushed for Krull to serve a total of 15 years in prison. Acting Bronx Supreme Court justice Lester B. Adler sentenced him to four three-year sentences and four one-year sentences which are to be served concurrently. Krull will spend a total of three years in jail and will be required to serve five years of supervision after his release and register as a sex offender.
The victim, now 16, told the court during Krull’s sentencing: “I used to feel like I had endless options,” the New York Times reported. “Now I feel limited.”
Krull had been with the police force for 12 years and was fired following his conviction.
