Officer Devin Staten Accused of Molesting 14-year-old

An LAX police officer is out on bail after being accused of molesting a 14-year-old foster child under the care of his mother.

Police were called to the Inglewood home after a report of a possible sexual assault, said Mike McBride of the Inglewood Police Department.

A teenager at the home accused Officer Devin Staten of touching her in an "inappropriate way" Monday night, McBride said.

The foster care home is owned and operated by Staten's mother.

The 31-year old officer also lives at the house in a converted garage.

Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services has been notified.

Investigators say two 18-year-old foster girls and a 10-year-old foster boy also live at the home, McBride said.
