DUPONT -- A former police officer in Luzerne County pleaded guilty to corruption of minors just as his trial was about to start.

David Turkos of Dupont entered the plea on Monday.

Back in 2015, Turkos was charged with child sex charges for allegedly raping two boys.

Court papers show at times, the former police officer would beat them, threaten them with his gun, and handcuff them.

    I am willing to bet he doesn’t get any jail time. Very little if at all. It’s Luzerne county a joke.

    What this man did is beyond heinous. He used his authority and power to destroy at least 2 children.

    What’s it going to cost the taxpayers to segregate this creep from the general prison population until he’s paroled and does it all over again? He should be forced to experienced what he did to those children, repeatedly, before he’s taken behind the courthouse and just taken out of society, forever.
