Last October, we shared with you the story of Jeremy Yachik, a Bertoud police officer under investigation by cops in Loveland over alleged child abuse caught on video. Yachik was charged with multiple child abuse counts -- and an arrest affidavit alleged punishment of his teenage daughter that included binding her hands with zip ties, locking her in the laundry room and force-feeding her hot sauce for sins such as eating carrots stored in the family refrigerator.

Now, Yachik has been sentenced after pleading guilty to a single abuse count -- and he won't be spending any time behind bars as a result of his sentence. Details, photos, videos and documents below.

As we've reported, the accusations against Yachik were made by his ex-girlfriend, Ashley Saint-Roberts. At the time of our original report, Saint-Roberts had been charged with domestic violence, third-degree assault and obstructing telephone service, resulting in the following mug shots:

We haven't been able to find any reports about the resolution of the case against Saint-Roberts. But there's plenty of documentation about her role in the Yackik matter.

According to the aforementioned police report, Saint-Roberts contacted the Loveland Police Department in late September 2013. During an interview, she "detailed years of physical abuse" allegedly suffered by her and Yachik's daughter when the latter was fifteen. She also shared a video of a man she identified as Yachik punching and choking a girl. The full video is encompassed in news coverage below, but here's a screen capture from the clip, which we've lightened to make the image easier to see:

Saint-Roberts told Loveland investigators that she'd shared the video with Yachik's boss, Berthoud Police Chief Glenn Johnson, but no action was taken. Afterward, she quoted Yachik as telling her, "Nice try...trying to get me fired.... It's not going to work."

Likewise, Weld County Child Protection dropped an investigation into Yachik's alleged abuse after being contacted by Saint-Roberts. But she didn't give up, sharing the video with what are described as "multiple news and police agencies."

Of these, the Loveland PD took the lead, interviewing Yachik's daughter in conjunction with the Child Advocacy Center in Fort Collins. The police report notes that the teenager "disclosed multiple incidents of child abuse she has suffered. She disclosed being choked, force-fed hot sauce, having her hands bound with plastic zip ties, being locked in rooms, punched, kicked, beaten with ropes, handcuffed and being restricted to eating food."

She added that these incidents had "occurred over several years and were almost a daily occurrence."

In a second interview, the teen got even more specific.

What a thing to see and then to Read the Ex-Cop still retained his Police Officers licence to do this again in another city or state. The cycle continues!

At this point, it isn't enough to get rid of the bad cop.  The corruption has spread to the officers that look the other way when their fellow officer turns out to be a criminal.  The corruption spreads to the DA's office for failure to hold their buddies accountable.  The mayor, in tolerating this behavior is infected as well.

Of course, he is above the law like any politician, celebrity, or law enforcement city worker. Plus judges are easily paid off or manipulated with a bag of coke and stripper prostitutes!!!

He didn't get jail time but he did not get off totally scott-free. From the article; Quote~ "As for Yachik, now an ex-cop, he pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor child abuse in April, and the Fort Collins Coloradoan reports that he's been sentenced to three years probation, thirty days in a work-release program and eighty hours of community service. On top of that, he can have no contact with his daughter, although she seems open to the idea at some point in the future. As quoted by the Reporter-Herald at this week's hearing, she said she wants to have a relationship with Yachik after he "gets help," adding, "I don't hate him as a person. I hate the things that he did." ~Unquote

Nope. And yeah, I wasn't there, I don't know the whole story, whatever! I still fail to find a way to justify abusing/beating someone -a teenage girl- like that for eating carrots...

If there is misinformation, please set the story straight. Do you have some sort of evidence that proves the paper has given misinformation? If so, please let us all know so you don't just look like someone who is making unfounded accusations.

Are you the judge? Are you on the jury? The public doesn't know dick!! Armchair litigators!!

Read the article..for not taking action an entire towns police force was dissolved, the victim(his daughter) went into detail about the abuse and he even is on record admitting to things like force feeding her and locking her away. Pretty clear it happened but only ended up with 3 yrs probation and 80 hrs of community service... For abusing his daughter. Sounds about right.

No. Colorados child abuse laws are too soft. You should be charged with a felony and serve time for child abuse. The animal abuse laws are tougher. What a pos
