DCC Fires Officer After Child Sex Sting Arrest

- LITTLE ROCK, AR--An Arkansas Community Correction officer has been terminated after being arrested in connection to a child sex sting.

"There are all kinds of things on the internet that people fantasize about. This is just one of them," said Faulkner County Chief Deputy Matt Rice.

The Faulkner County Sheriff's Office arrested the 30-year-old Thursday after they say he tried to meet up a with a woman for sex with her children.

"He knew that is was a mother that had two kids age 12 and 9 and he was wanting to meet for sexual purposes with all three," said Rice.

Kroger on Salem Road in Conway is where undercover deputies arranged for the meeting.

"He was quite in a hurry to meet up," said Rice.

But deputies ended up arresting the former law enforcement officer, who first worked for the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office in 2007, but got fired for falsifying a report.

He was rehired in 2013 as a detention officer, but quit for an unknown reason.

He then went to work for the Department of Community Correction last month, but lost the job because of his recent arrest.

"He was still probationary. So it was a quick movement to terminate him," said DCC deputy director Dina Tyler.

She adds there weren't any red flags on George's application because he did not have a criminal record and had strong references.

"The former Sheriff of Faulkner County gave him a good reference, as did a lieutenant at the current sheriff's office. So we had good references on him and his background was clean ," said Tyler.

However, after his arrest, the department found out he lied on his application.

"He put he had left the Sheriffs Office in Faulkner County not because he was terminated, but because there was a change in administration. So he was not truthful on that form. So that's another reason to terminate him," said Tyler.
