Virginia Police Officer Charged With Raping Child

Court records show a Poquoson police officer has been charged with raping a girl less than 13 years old.

Virginia State Police have declined to say how old the girl is. State police said in a news release the girl was interviewed by a nurse at the Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters, where she was able to describe several assaults in detail. State police investigated the allegations after being contacted by the Department of Social Services.

It was not immediately clear whether the arrested officer, Steven McGee, had hired an attorney.

A court date to appoint counsel was set for Tuesday.

Poquoson Police Chief Cliff Bowen said McGee worked for the department for three years as a patrol officer. McGee resigned Thursday.
