One of the actual detectives upon which the television series Law and Order – SVU (Special Victims Unit) was based, has been arrested and charged with 82 counts of having sex with minors. The children, who are family members but not his own children said retired NYPD police officer Nicholas McAteer repeatedly raped them.

McAteer, who was arrested on August 22nd after one of the girls came forward, was charged with several felony child sex abuse charges and released after posting $75,000 bond.

But just days later, the second alleged victim came forward and McAteer was then taken back into custody after a grand jury convened and handed down dozens of additional charges. The two say the abuse took place over decades. The girls will not be identified as victims of sexual abuse are not identified by news media organizations even after they’re adulthood.

McAteer was a member of the NYPD’s Manhattan Special Victims Division. He was also an officer with the Internal Affairs division, the department which is said to be staffed by men of the highest integrity.

At one point in his career, the retired NYPD officer was in charge of investigating the same types of sex crimes he’s now charged with.

The girls reportedly told police he would have sex with them after his wife fell asleep, and inside his unmarked NYPD police cruiser. They say the sexual abuse took place when they were 12 and 13 years of age. The arrest of McAteer came just weeks before a San Antonio sex crimes investigator was accused of disgracing his job as well.

Bexar County District Attorney Nico LaHood says San Antonio Police Detective Kenneth Valdez not only did not close the sex crimes cases he was responsible for. Instead, he simply threw them away.

LaHood claims, in essence, Valdez is guilty of dereliction of duty:

One thing I know for sure is this individual had a duty to protect children, and he chose to ignore that duty.
