Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced that former Loveland police officer Anthony Pecord has been convicted of three counts of Gross Sexual Imposition (F4) and has been sentenced to 4 years in prison. As a result of the plea, Pecord will be required to register as a Tier I sex offender for a period of 15 years.

Pecord was indicted earlier this month for an incident that occurred on January 24, 2021.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters commented, “Thanks to Sheriff Deputy Jack Losekamp’s work, the photographic evidence of this crime was discovered, despite Pecord’s attempts to destroy it. Without the efforts of Detective Jack Losekamp and Assistant Prosecutor Christina Dattilo, we could not have pursued this case and Pecord would still be free.

We are especially sensitive to the victim’s wishes in sexual assault cases. As a result of this plea, we were able to provide justice to this victim while allowing the victim to close this chapter of his life and begin the healing process. What is absolutely clear is Pecord should never, and will never, work in law enforcement again.”
