A Baltimore City police officer who lives in Columbia faces sex charges involving alleged acts with a teenage prostitute, according to the Howard County Police Department.

Charles William Hagee, 44, of the 8800 block of Goose Landing Circle in Columbia, was arrested at the Baltimore police headquarters and will be charged with third and fourth-degree sexual offenses as well as sexual solicitation of a minor, according to a report from Howard County officials.

The Howard County Police Department was given a tip "regarding the prostitution of a 14-year-old girl in Columbia," which led police to the officer, the report stated.

Police said Hagee contacted the girl through a phone number posted in an online advertisement for prostitution, then the two exchanged text messages before meeting at his home. They engaged in sexual activity three times between January and May 2013, police said.

Hagee, a 19-year veteran assigned to the Special Enforcement Section of the Baltimore City Police Department, has been suspended without pay, police said.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone who may have been a victim or have additional information about Hagee can contact the Child Advocacy Center at 410-313-2630.

I'm wondering why the police officers photo isn't plastered all over the place. The police certainly would release anyone else's.

Doesn't Balto City police have 20-year and out full pension, like alot of big cities? He's probably ready to retire handsomely on the taxpayers' dime -- pension of $50k/year with inflation increases....worth about $1.5M and lifetime healthcare. Don't know why Patch never asks or investigates these financial catastrophes that the private sector workers (non-govt workers) are paying for

I believe that anyone paid to protect and serve who is caught in a crime such as this should get twice the jail time with twice the fines. There is no telling what else this pervert is engaged in. If he I willing to go that low how many people has he put in jail that were framed ? If I were a Baltimore City Policeman I would kick his ass just for making other officers look bad !!!!!!

The cops don't give a rat's patoot. They protect their own no matter what heinous crime they've committed.
