Los Angeles Police officer Robert Cain reportedly took the teen cadet that he allegedly sexually assaulted to Six Flags Magic Mountain on the day that the assaults occurred.
Cain picked up the 15-year-old girl from her South Los Angeles home on June 14 and took her to the theme park, which her parents were aware of.
Throughout the day, Cain is accused of sexually assaulting the girl three different times at three different locations.
He has been charged with two counts each of oral copulation of a person under the age of 16, lewd acts upon a child, and unlawful sexual intercourse.
Maria Cain, the officer's mother, says she was aware that her son took a girl to Six Flags, but denies that he sexually assaulted the girl. She claims that he is just the "scapegoat" for the entire LAPD cadet scandal, which involved cadets stealing police cruisers, tasers, radios, and a bulletproof vest.
Maria did say that her son expressed concern over his relationship with the girl.
She said the Cain once commented, "Oh Mom, there is a problem with a girl. I have a bad feeling about it.”
However, she also maintains that her son had nothing to do with the theft of the police equipment and that he would never harm a child.
Cain is scheduled to appear in court in San Bernardino County on August 15 over the weapons charges, which he pleaded not guilty to.
There is still no scheduled date for arraignment on the sex abuse charges.
