Stephanie Southard latest Denver cop in trouble for alleged on-duty sex and more

Last month, we told you about Denver Police Detective Michael Ryan, who was busted in Lakewood after being caught in a car with a prostitute who was apparently on the verge of performing oral sex on him. But this episode isn't an isolated incident.

Officer Stephanie Southard has now been fired for allegedly having sex 25-30 times while on-duty -- an assertion she's appealing. And at least two other Denver cops have been disciplined for sexual matters over the past couple of months.

Detective Michael Ryan.
On April 10, as we've reported, Ryan and a 49-year-old woman described as a known prostitute were found together in a car parked near the intersection of West Colfax and Ingalls. Ryan, a seventeen-year-veteran of the DPD whose duties included the investigation of prostitution cases, is said to have had his belt and pants unbuckled, while the woman was bent over the car's center console.

Ryan wasn't immediately charged with a crime after being cited by Lakewood cops. Why not?

"Our people indicated in their reports that once Michael Ryan was released, it was only pending charges," Lakewood Police Department spokesman Steve Davis said last month in a Westword interview. "They wanted to talk to our special-investigations unit, and they also knew the case was going to involve two law-enforcement agencies. I think they had every intention of speaking to superior officers in our department as well as the Denver Police Department as to how this was going to shake out. There were some unusual circumstances about the whole contact, so I think they were being very cautious about how they did it."

Davis added that "a summons can be issued up to eighteen months later in a misdemeanor, so they knew they had plenty of time to do it right and make sure both departments had everything in order before charges were brought against him... They knew it was a case that was going to garner a lot of attention, so they wanted to make sure their ducks were in a row."

In the end, Ryan did receive a summons.

For his part, DPD Detective John White, a well-known figure in the community owing to his work as a public-information officer, received a suspension for his own sexual peccadilloes.

A former girlfriend reportedly accused White of having sex with her in his car while he was on the clock.

In the end, DPD investigators couldn't corroborate these assertions. However, there was no doubt about the presence of dubious photos on White's department-issued phone -- some 600 of them, many featuring nude shots.

He also used the phone to text things like "Nothing better than a nice hard round booty :-))" and "Gonna spank that little tushy :-))."

White was ultimately suspended for ten days without pay for misuse of his taxpayer-funded phone.

Prior to White's suspension, another member of the department got the same treatment for similar reasons.

Humans will be humans, regardless of what their job is.  If you didn't learn that lesson a loooonnnng time ago perhaps you are still in grade school.  I just pray I see my beloved city do something about the 130 children in the officers pornographic videos that are missing.  Please God let this incite some passion to do something more about the many children that are taken every year, used and exploited and often never heard from again.

Should let me borrow yo truck. Ya coulda took me to yo place dis weekend & then let me borrow yo truck. I'm alot more trustworthy than anyone who you've let borrow your truck, plus I need someone to actually be there when things haven't been goin well for me. If I had my own transportation, then I could be responsible & everything would be better soon. Wish I was chilling wit ya dis weekend, woulda been fun. huh?

At any normal job you would be terminated for having sex when you're on the clock..Yet ppl who actually do work for a living have to pay these dip shits salaries?! DPD is a disgrace. They should be held more accountable given the importance of their duties. These worthless d bags are humping each others nasty asses while most crimes go unsolved. Think about it...

Wow now I know what they are were doing last week when I had some creepy guy hanging around my house. Oh and they never came but did call me 2 hours after I called them. Then my fiancé had someone pull out if front of him and wrecked both vehicles and it took them 2 hours before they showed up to the accident.
