Baytown, TX — A Baytown cop is under a criminal investigation as well as an internal investigation, after being accused of extorting nude photos from a teen girl after a traffic stop.

According to affidavits filed in the case, Officer Michael Coppock told an 18-year-old driver that he would change two traffic tickets to warnings if the teen would send him naked pictures of herself.

According to the investigation, Coppock ticketed the girl for speeding and an expired registration and offered to dismiss them for the nudes.

After ticketing her, this sicko cop tracked down his victim on social media and communicated with her via text message. The text messages were confirmed on Coppock’s phone after the department acquired a search warrant to view them.

As KHOU reports, in laying out their case for a search warrant for Coppock’s cell phone, police say they viewed screenshots of the conversations and characterized the messages as “clearly coercive in nature,” and “putting pressure” on the teen.

So far, the department has refused to comment on the case, only noting that there is an active investigation and that Coppock is still on the force.

KHOU spoke with Larry Karson, an assistant professor of criminal justice at the University of Houston-Downtown, who brings out some serious questions.

“Has more than one woman been extorted in this manner?” wondered Karson. “With a story such as you’re doing on KHOU, this is offering the opportunity for other victims to come forth and give their own story of victimization. It also allows the chief to find out if it’s any deeper in his department. If it’s more than one rotten apple. If it’s actually some hidden subculture within the department if he gets more people coming forth.”

In spite of the screen shots and the confirmed ‘coercive’ text messages, Coppock has yet to be charged in this case.

According to court records, investigators have also obtained search warrants for the cop’s Snapchat as well as his alleged victim. If Karson’s theory holds water, which it most likely will, investigators could likely uncover a history of abuses just like this one.

Sadly, Coppock’s actions are far from isolated. Police officers — as well as those in any position of ‘authority’ — will often use those positions to prey on the vulnerable. As the Free Thought Project has pointed out numerous times, all too often, society’s worst are attracted to these positions because of that power.

 “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men,…” —John Dalberg-Acton

The quote above sums this scenario up perfectly and explains why there is rampant abuse of police database searches, sexual misconduct, and a near-epidemic of child pornography within police departments from coast to coast.

When Coppock decided to extort nude photos from a teen he was extorting through traffic tickets, perhaps he was fantasizing about being like Trooper James Randy Moss. Moss served 4 years of probation for his idiotic and power-abusing actions, after stopping Justis Ellen Richert, who’s known in the porn industry as Barbie Cummings.

Cummings said she told the trooper about her job and sat beside him in the front seat of his cruiser as he checked her Web site from his state-issued laptop, then said yes when she offered him oral sex.

Cummings said the trooper shot photos and video of the act with his cell phone and sent her copies. Then the world’s dumbest cop asked her to put them on her blog so he could brag about it to his buddies on the force.

Naturally, the officer was caught after bragging to his entire department that he’d extorted fellatio while collecting revenue for the state.

Perhaps the most telling aspect of this story is that even after this abusive cop received the sexual favor, he still wrote her a ticket.

    This is nothing less than attempted sexual assault. It is RAPE when sexual favors are demanded from a woman in exchange for her freedom… in this case, freedom from months and months of financial fuckery the likes of which most people can’t afford.

    • Tom

      What of the lonely wives, demanding sexual favors from their husbands who are often consumed with work and career? Is it RAPE when sexual favors are demanded from a man? Or are you a sexist?

        Not the same thing, not even close. What an an ass.

        As to your fancy ass picture next to your name ! You can wear it as a Hat and walk fucking *Backwards* into the hole you crawled out of ! What a dipshit !

        See this *stick* I’am holding in my hand ! The nice long dirty one, with the crud dripping off of ! Bend over ! I’ll show ya what I’am going to do with it and your *Lib an American Attitude !!!!

    Is the whole story just as presented – or is there more to it? To play devil’s advocate, I’m wondering if the cop and 18-year old girl have an active relationship going. I’ve known women who are attracted to cops – badges, guns and all. Often, they want the authority figure to dominate and “take” them. Handcuffs often have baby oil on them, if you know what I mean. Oh – and the header to the story says she’s a “teen” – implying she’s just a minor. In my part of the country, 18 is a legal woman, able to give consent.

    • Damiana

      You’re just not too bright, are you? If this “relationship” were any kind of consensual, he wouldn’t be in trouble right now.

      • Tom

        Deepest condolences to your parents. Did they have any children that aren’t retarded?

        • Damiana

          Go back to Infowars, dipshit!

        • Guy

          If you can’t at least be part of the cure for this sort of stuff to stop happen to Women, Children, little girls and boy’s !

          Then you must be part of the *Cause of it* ! As such you should have your balls surgically removed, then set into the desert to wander, untill you see God, or Die, or Both !

          “Good Riddance To Bad Rubbish.” As we say here in the U.S.OF. A. Get my point bozo !? Good ! Now shut the fuck up !

    This is not to defend the actions of this police officer, however, the “teen girl” is an adult. I knew before reading this article that the victim was at least 18 years old. That fact doesn’t justifies the cop’s actions, but I’m just aware of how these terms such as “teen girl” are used to make one person seem sadistic and the other person more pure and innocent.

    • Damiana

      The number 18 is spelled eighTEEN. Just because someone is a “legal adult” for two years doesn’t mean they’re not still a teenager. If she’s not old enough to drink, she shouldn’t be old enough for cops to sexually harass her and be excused.

      • Hubert Harrison

        So, you obviously overlook my comment which I stated that the cop has no justification whatsoever for his actions by implying that it was okay for the cop to do what he did because she was 18. Stop being an emotional mental sloth. You completely miss my entire point.

  • Guy

    Absolutly And Morally Disgusting ! For any Cop or Person Of Legal Authority to behave in such a reprehensible way. Age has nothing to do with it, it’s the act that is everything about it, that dose !

    I like the idea of the *The Old Testament Laws* Of Eye For A Eye*, or even what they do in the Mid-East now. Public Flogging after being drummed out of the force , including a suitable jail sentence would be a good start, and go a long way as the example for others to know what would happen to em as well. But of course we are too civilized for that sort of treatment, preferring to gently wrist slap and put em on paid leaves !
