Sergeant charged with fondling officer’s young daughter

Chicago Police Department – CPD

A veteran Chicago police sergeant was charged with fondling the 9-year-old daughter of a police officer at a barbecue over the weekend, a spokesperson for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office said.

Dennis Barnes, 61, a patrol sergeant in the South Side’s Wentworth police district, was charged Wednesday night with three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and one count of attempted predatory sexual assault, spokesperson Sally Daly said.

Barnes was at the officer’s home for a barbecue Saturday night in the South Chicago neighborhood when he allegedly fondled the girl, according to law enforcement sources. The girl told relatives and Barnes was confronted while still at the home, the sources said.

Barnes, who was arrested Tuesday, could appear in bond court Thursday afternoon at the Leighton Criminal Court Building.

    everyone is worried about the police officer in this situation what about the little girl she is going to be scarred.being a police officer is just a title they take it to the head he is just another man a dirty predator and hopefully he will get what he deserves just like any normal citizen.this little girl is going to endure so much pain she is going to need a lot of help and support.

    Police are liars and thieves known for framing suspects , child molesting ,murdering innocent people, and killing kittens and puppies like you didn’t know it ! I’m sure this cop will be put on desk duty and later found not guilty ! the police will say the little girl provoked the cop !


    Not all officers are dirty. There are more honest officers in this world then there are dirty ones. Yes, there are creeps in every occupation but that doesn’t make them all bad. That cop had gutts doing that at the little girl’s home and her dad a cop too!!!! Did he think she wouldn’t tell her dad? He will get what he deserves…her dad is a cop and will see that his daughter gets justice…I would bet.
