Officer officially fired after alleged sexual misconduct

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A Youngstown police officer, accused of taking nude pictures and soliciting sex from a 14-year-old girl is officially fired from his job.

The Youngstown Police Department officially terminated Defective Sergeant Robert Lodwick from the police force Friday June 14, after alleged sexual misconduct with a juvenile female. 

Lodwick was originally placed on unpaid leave after he was charged with importuning and improperly using a minor in nudity-oriented material on June 7.

The Youngstown police department issued a statement Monday  confirming that Lodwick has been fired from the force.   

A disciplinary letter to Lodwick read, "It will be some time before the damage that you have inflicted on this Department can ever be repaired, and you have single handedly just made the job of every member of the Youngstown Police Department more difficult."

Lodwick remains jailed awaiting action by a grand jury.

21 News attempted to reach union representatives who attended a pre-disciplinary meeting for Lodwick but they did not wish to comment.

Chief of Police Rod Foley also did not wish to comment.
