LAPD Cop Convicted of Exposing Himself to 12 Year Old Girl And Multiple Women

On Tuesday (Dec. 1st), LAPD Officer Ryan Eric Galliher was found guilty of multiple sex crimes involving exposing himself and propositioning a 12 year old after approaching her and exposing himself in the Bolsa Chica wetlands, located within Orange County, CA. Galliher was arrested in October of 2014 after at least a half dozen women reported a man exposing himself and publicly masturbating.

The two incidents involving the 12 year old girl happened in February and then again in March of 2014. At the time of his arrest, Huntington Beach police detectives observed him walk out of the wetlands, pull his pants down, and begin masturbating.

Via the LA Times:

Jurors found Ryan Eric Galliher, 33, of Huntington Beach guilty of a felony count of attempted lewd act upon a child under 14 years old, a felony count of contacting a minor with the intent to commit a lewd act, six misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and a misdemeanor count of engaging in lewd conduct, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office.

LAPD Officer Lewd Acts MinorGalliher faces up to four years in prison, prosecutors said. He must also register as a lifetime sex offender. Galliher is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 18… (NOTE: The OC Weekly states he is facing 8 years.)

His victims included women between 18 to 80 years old, prosecutors said.

The youngest victim was 12. Prosecutors said Galliher approached her on Feb. 27, 2014, in the ecological preserve, exposed himself and asked her to touch his penis. The following month, he approached the girl again near Bolsa Chica Street and exposed himself to her, prosecutors said.

In one instance, Galliher stood naked near a path in the wetlands, wearing only tennis shoes, prosecutors said.

Somehow, as of Wednesday, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck hadn’t gotten around to firing Galliher yet, even though his arrest came over a year prior to his conviction that, based on the evidence, shouldn’t have been a surprise. In addition, Officer Galliher has been “assigned to home” since his arrest, which is a fancy way of saying he received the typical paid vacation that most cops are given once they are accused of crimes.
