A police officer in Oklahoma is accused of sex crimes against a teen girl after the victim’s grandmother discovered evidence of an inappropriate relationship on the 14-year-old’s phone.

Valley Brook Police Officer Courtney Schlinke, 21, is facing 33 complaints, including 16 counts of rape by instrumentation, nine counts of lewd acts with a child under 16 and eight counts of oral sodomy, according to NewsOK.

The victim’s grandmother, Jeanne England, told News 9, "She's a psychopath. She's evil. She's a predator."

According to investigators, the victim's family went to police July 1 after discovering disturbing photos and messages between her and Schlinke on her phone. The evidence appears to date back almost a year, but police believe the sexual relationship could have gone on longer.

Schlinke has been very active on social media, including Twitter, posting numerous photos of herself and the victim, whom she referred to as her “girlfriend.”

The ex-cop also tweeted cryptic messages that said, "I forget your age sometimes" and "I don't wanna hide you anymore."

Courtney Schlinke had been with the department since February, but resigned from her job in an unrelated personnel matter July 20. She was arrested a week later. Valley Brook Police Chief Michael Stamp said Schlinke was still in training, but had been doing police work under a trained officer, according to NewsOK.

"It's unfortunate," Stamp told News 9. "We as police officers are held to a higher standard."

Schlinke remains in Oklahoma County jail on $1.1 million bond. She is scheduled to appear via video feed at an arraignment hearing in Oklahoma County Court on Thursday.
