A biological man who identifies as a woman was arrested for allegedly se-ually abusing multiple children. The 33-year-old former officer was arrested on charges of transmitting harmful materials to minors, unlawful se-ual activity with certain minors, and lewd and lascivious battery.
“Diana manipulated the young victims in this case and then took advantage of them,” Sheriff Mike said in the press release. “She was able to foster a relationship with one victim and identify her next victims through them, showing a pattern of predatory behavior. This conduct will not be tolerated in our county, and the SVU detectives will work tirelessly to bring justice to these young victims.”
A parent contacted the CCSO to say they overheard their child, an unidentified minor, talking about another unidentified juvenile who had allegedly engaged in se-ual activity with Diana. The first child also told their parent that Diana had sent them explicit photos and videos to them on social media. Detective Tony investigated the case and found multiple minors who described se-ual activity with Diana at Diana’s residence. Investigators also collected evidence of the accuser’s claims of se-ual abuse and explicit images.
Diana is currently being held in jail on a $47,000 bond. The CCSO and multiple news outlets identified Diana as a woman, but the outlet revealed that Diana is, in fact, transgender, and even discussed the transition in 2017. Diana was a member of the police force until an injury necessitated leaving law enforcement. With a lot of time to think, Diana decided to become a woman. “I knew I ticked differently, but I didn’t know how,” Diana told the news outlet at the time. “Then I figured it out. ‘Oh! I’m trans.’” Diana underwent physical changes to appear as a woman. While allegedly se-ually abusing minors, Diana claimed to be 23 years old, instead of 33.
