| by Michael Allen

Steven Feinberg, a Memphis, Tenn. police officer, was arrested last week for allegedly sexually assaulting a girl for five years, beginning when she was 12 years old.

The Memphis Department of Children’s Services reportedly received an anonymous tip that Feinberg was sexually abusing the girl, who is now 17.

According to the police report, the victim told local police that the allegations were true and occurred in multiple homes that Feinberg has lived in over the years.

WREG reports that investigators claim Feinberg started touching the girl when she was 12 and began having sex with her when she turned 14.

According to his neighbors, the 33-year-old Feinberg is married with children.

Feinberg, who has been removed from duty, has been a Memphis police officer since 2007.

He is being charged with numerous counts, including sexual battery and statutory rape, notes WMC Action News 5.

Feinberg was arrested last Friday, but bailed out on Saturday by paying a $40,000 bond. He is due in court tomorrow, May 27.
