No Charges For Ohio Highway Patrol Trooper Who Admitted To Watching Porn, Masturbating With Boy

An Ohio man who admitted to watching porn and masturbating with a young boy will not face any criminal charges, according to the Sandusky County Sheriff's Office. The man, Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Ricky Vitte Jr., recently admitted to his wife that he had masturbated with a young boy during two instances five years ago. Despite this admission, Sandusy County Sheriff’s Deputy Sean O’Connell maintained that Vitte Jr.’s sexual activity could not be deemed as misconduct.

Vitte Jr. and the boy allegedly watched porn while a dresser blocked the man and the boy from seeing each other. Vitte Jr. claims that he was attempting to teach the boy about sex, and that they did not have any sexual contact. 

“Rick’s reasoning is the fact that he did not want [the boy] to feel pressured on feeling the need to have to have sex with someone, when he can fix those needs by masturbating to porn,” O’Connell told the Sandusky register. 

Although Vitte Jr. is not being charged with any sex crimes, he did flee the scene when social workers attempted to interview him about the incident, Raw Story reports. 

“He was purposefully fleeing the area to avoid confrontation and or an arrest,” reads a portion of O’Connel’s report on Vitte Jr. Still, however, Vitte Jr. is not being prosecuted on any charges. 

Vitte Jr.'s history of abuse includes a charge of domestic violence that took place ten years ago after spanking his girlfriend’s son for wetting the bed. He was ultimately convicted of child endangering. 

Vitte Jr.’s wife is reportedly seeking full custody of the couple’s five children as a result of this most recent sexual incident.
