Ex-officer waives hearing in child corruption case

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT HOLLY SPRINGS, Pa. (WHTM) -

A former police officer accused of sending sexually explicit text messages to a 13-year-old girl has waived his preliminary hearing in the case.

Daniel M. Lanious, 49, of Carlisle, appeared before a district judge Wednesday and allowed a misdemeanor charge of corruption of minors to proceed to Cumberland County court.

The judge scheduled a formal arraignment June 19.

According to court documents, Lanious admitted to sending flirtatious and sexual text messages to the girl in July and August before the girl's mother found a message that read, "I wish you were home. I wish you were on birth control. I have a condom."

Lanious also admitted that he sent his son to the victim's house to see whether her mother planned to report the messages to police, documents state.

Lanious was a patrolman with the Carroll Valley Police Department in Adams County until he resigned last summer.
