Birmingham police officer terminated after being charged with rape, sexual abuse of a child
Joshua Herbinger, 29, was arrested in Alabaster Monday, said Alabaster Police Chief Curtis Rigney. It is the second arrest for Herbinger in Alabaster, and Rigney said more charges could follow.
Herbinger is now charged with first-degree rape. Rigney said he couldn't release additional details about the case, but said the victim was not in any kind of domestic relationship with the officer.
Herbinger, a 9-year BPD veteran, was arrested at Alabaster's police headquarters Monday and released the same day after posting $60,000 bond.
In the earlier case, Herbinger was arrested Oct. 9 after a young female victim reported the abuse to the School Resource Officer at her school. The chief said the victim is not related to Herbinger. The abuse, police said, is reported to have happened over the past two to three years.
Herbinger was charged with four counts of sexual abuse of a child less than 12 years old. He was released from jail on $80,000 in that case. He is set to have a hearing on the child sex abuse charges Nov. 5.
Sgt. Sean Edwards confirmed that Joshua Herbinger, 29, of Alabaster, was terminated effective today.
Herbinger was a nine-year veteran of the Birmingham Police Department.
Should We Trust Police Officers?
Are police officers allowed to lie to you? Yes the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can lie to the American people. Police officers are trained at lying, twisting words and being manipulative. Police officers and other law enforcement agents are very skilled at getting information from people. So don’t try to “out smart” a police officer and don’t try being a “smooth talker” because you will lose! If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might come out ahead more than you expected.

State Trooper Gets Just 6 Months For Raping Car Accident Victim
An Alabama state trooper accused of raping a car accident victim and forcing her to perform oral sex was sentenced to just six months in jail.
Samuel H. McHenry II, 36, pleaded guilty on Thursday to misdemeanor sexual misconduct under a deal with prosecutors. He originally faced charges of rape and sodomy for the December 2015 incident, but those were dismissed.
Under the agreement, the ex-trooper’s state certification will be revoked and he will be required to register as a sex offender, the Associated Press reported.
McHenry will also be permitted to serve his sentence “in increments at his own discretion,” WSFA reported. The 182 days must be served within the next year.
McHenry, of Rutledge, was supposed to help the victim on Dec. 6 when he was called to the scene of the accident in Butler County around 10 p.m.
Instead, the sicko threatened to arrest her after spotting pill bottles and an empty nasal spray bottle in her vehicle, Birmingham’s WVTM reported.
According to an affidavit, McHenry placed the woman in a caged area in the back of his squad car and drove her to an exit off Interstate 65 in south Alabama.
Once in a new location, he opened the back door and told her, “Fuck me or go to jail,” court papers state. He then pulled her pants down, raped her and afterward, forced her to perform oral sex, according to the documents.
McHenry then allegedly drove to another exit and dumped the victim at a closed store before taking off. The alleged assault ended around 1:45 a.m. on Dec. 7, court records state.The trooper was arrested, freed on bond and fired shortly after.
According to the AP, the victim was examined Dec. 7 at a hospital and a rape kit was obtained. Prosecutors said samples taken from McHenry’s patrol car tested positive for the presence of semen.
Cops Are Corrupt Birmingham PD
The prominent investigative blogger Roger Shuler was arrested and beaten by Shelby County sheriff's deputies in his Alabama garage upon returning home the evening of Oct. 23.
Shuler faces charges stemming from his refusal to obey a judge's order to stop writing about an alleged affair involving Robert Riley Jr., an attorney who is part of Alabama's most prominent political family.
Shuler's mug shot shows a swollen face. Authorities in his county south of Birmingham held him on two contempt of court charges and one for resisting arrest. A judge refused to set bond on the contempt charges, thereby enabling authorities to hold Shuler for an undetermined period that could be many months at the judge's discretion. His bond was $1,000 for the resisting arrest charge.
