    CO~Police Sgt. Morgan Sellman charged with child porn possession

    Sgt. Sellman supposedly had NO contact with children. He's the coordinator of the D.A.R.E. program. We'll have to see if that proves to the case here.

    Sellman is out on bail. I'm sure he's not real popular with his former co-workers/officers. Some new details.....

    Remember all the disclaimers about how Sgt. Sellman had no contact with children? Recall how he had child porn of children as young as two years? Remember how he's free on bail?

    IMO, it's likely that he does have some contact with children as his wife is an elementary school vice principal--and one who has been attempting to have a preschool added to her school. I did not go looking for her. I simply noted where Sellman lives and occasionally goes to meetings and there she was. She's also noted in several articles concerning the fact that she helped investigators locate his laptop.

    "Police say the computer contained more than 240 illegal videos, including one of a man molesting a girl believed to be between 2 and 4 years old. Other files showed similar sex acts involving prepubescent boys and girls.

    Sellman is a 14-year veteran of the Aurora Police Department whose most recent assignment entailed purchasing police equipment and supplies and coordinating the anti-drug program that sends officers to Aurora schools.

    He last taught children as a D.A.R.E. liaison in 2001, Aurora police spokesman detective Robert Friel said in a written statement....."

    Oh, and there's the fact that there is a middle school (grades 7-9/ages approx. 11-14 yrs.) about 1000 feet from his front door. That is, if his family allows him to come home. Call me jaded but I have to wonder why he stopped working directly with children in 200, especially considering his high interest in children. Most D.A.R.E programs work with 4th-6th graders. I hope he wasn't shuttled around due to a report of some sort. Let's hope that his former students are closely looked at.

    It seems like a no-brainer but without being glib, I really do wonder concerning the protocol of being fired, put on leave, and resigning. As young as two........
