Former Tremonton officer charged with sexual exploitation

BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (AP) — A former small town Utah police officer has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor in connection with posing as a porn producer to get nude pictures of a teenage girl.

The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports that the 37-year-old Jeremy Rose is also charged with voyeurism and obstruction of justice.

Rose resigned from the Tremonton police department in July after the Utah Attorney General’s office began investigating him.

He is accused of persuading a 15-year-old girl to send him semi-nude photos. He told her he was going to sell them on the Internet so she could make money.

He is also accused of taking video of the girl undressing using a camera he hid in her bedroom.

Neither Rose and or attorney were available for comment.
