A disturbing case in Florida has come to light, with a man facing life in prison after admitting to sexual abuse during a police officer job interview.

The Crime and Confession

Stephen Bodley, 26, aspired to join the Apopka Police Department.

However, his dream turned into a nightmare for himself and his victim.

During the application process, Bodley made a shocking admission.

In his sworn application, he mentioned “playing sexual games” with someone.

This raised red flags for the department, and the issue was further explored during his interview.

Bodley’s initial confession wasn’t the end of the story.

When questioned further by a voice stress analyst, Bodley went into more detail.

He described sexually abusing a child years ago and admitted to the act when pressed for clarification.

The Investigation and Trial

Following Bodley’s disturbing confession, detectives tracked down the victim’s mother.

According to reports, the victim, a female, told the Florida Department of Children and Families about the abuse, which occurred over several years during Bodley’s teenage years.

Stephen Bodley’s lawyer attempted to have his confession excluded from the trial, but the judge ruled against this motion.

In the end, a jury found Bodley guilty of sexual battery on a child, a crime that carries a potential life sentence.

A Sentence Awaits

Stephen Bodley’s dream of becoming a police officer has turned into a devastating reality.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on June 24th and faces a potential life sentence for his actions.

This case serves as a stark reminder of the importance of thorough background checks and the bravery of victims who come forward.
