A Hampden County grand jury has indicted a suspended Springfield police officer on 35 criminal charges, including child rape accusations.
Jim Leydon, spokesperson for the Hampden County District Attorney’s Office, confirmed for 22News that Daniel Cintron, a Monson resident, is accused of rape in the case of three different underage victims. He had previously been charged in district court for crimes against only two victims.
Under the indictments, Cintron faces charges including child rape, engaging children in sexual conduct, and dissemination of matter harmful to minors.
At the time of his arrest back in May, Cintron was already under unpaid suspension from the Springfield Police Department. That suspension was due to a separate incident in which prosecutors say he had a violent confrontation with a teenager at the Eastfield Mall. He is charged with unarmed robbery, assault and battery, and witness intimidation in that case.
