WATERVLIET, NY - A cop on the beat is supposed to help little girls on the street.
Watervliet, New York police officer Joshua Spratt was one of those cops who watched over kids.
But now, investigators are putting together a case that alleges he had sex with two high school students while working as a school resource officer. They were 16 and 17.
State police say they have cell phone and text records to back up the claims of an eyewitness. And, the district attorney thinks there may be more victims.
A grand jury indictment says Spratt had oral sex with the 16-year-old in the parking lots of two local cemeteries and the parking lot of the Watervliet elementary school.
Spratt is an Iraq war vet and a married father of three. He pleaded not guilty to charges of a criminal sex act in the third degree, endangering the welfare of a child, and official misconduct.
If he had sex with an underage girl, that`s bad enough, but at a cemetery is just dead wrong.
