Cop Not Prosecuted for Masturbating with Pre-Teen Boy

The Sandusky County highway patrol trooper said he wanted to show the boy other outlets for sex drive than having sex

A highway patrol trooper in Sandusky County, Ohio, will not face charges after allegations surfaced that he and a pre-teen boy masturbated together five years ago.

Trooper Ricky Vitte Jr. told his wife “he did not want (the boy) to feel pressured on feeling the need to have to have sex with someone, when he can fix those needs by masturbating to porn,” according to a police report. The report says that on two separate occasions Vitte and the boy watched porn and masturbated in unison, with a dresser between them blocking their views of one another, the Sandusky Register reports.

According to the local newspaper, a Sandusky prosecutor declined to seek an indictment “because Vitte might have presented a defense that justified his alleged actions.”

The Sandusky Register reports that Vitte was charged with domestic violence years ago, after spanking his then-girlfriend’s 5-year-old son so hard the boy’s buttocks were left bruised and bleeding.
