David Cerna Case

FORMER CHESTERFIELD POLICE OFFICER DAVID CERNA, COP, SEX PERVERT, VIDEO PRODUCER AND WEBSITE OWNER! NOW READ THE INVESTIGATIVE REPORT

October 14, 2017 – KTVI newsman Chris Hayes got a tip and broke the case that someone was video recording people urinating in the men’s bathroom on the Mobil on the Run in Chesterfield on Clarkson Road. He turned his evidence over to the Chesterfield Police.

A thorough investigation determined that Chesterfield Officer David Cerna while on duty had been hiding a camera in the bathroom recording men’s penises at the urinal. The Mobil station was a favorite place for police officers to take a bathroom break and at least seven officers were also recorded.

A search warrant of Cerna’s house in Wentzville resulted in computers being seized. There the bathroom images, along with recordings of Cerna using a glory hole at his house and performing anonymous oral sex on people responding to messages on websites were found. All these images were placed on a website run by Cerna.

More troubling were secret recordings of officers changing clothes in the Chesterfield Police locker room, people, including juvenile males wearing sweat pants or shorts being frisked by Cerna and having their pants pulled out at the waist and their genitals secretly recorded by Cerna using a small recording device.

Cerna pled guilty to:

2 counts of Felony Invasion of Privacy in St. Charles CO Sentenced to 60 days jail.

Felony Invasion of Privacy Multiple Persons St. Louis County Sentenced to 4 Years prison but placed on 5-years probation.

Misdemeanor Invasion of Privacy St. Louis County. Sentenced to 1-year jail no probation.
 
Felony Sexual Exploitation of a Minor St. Louis County. Sentenced to 10-years prison but placed on 5 year probation term.
 
Felony Invasion of Privacy Multiple Persons St. Louis County. Sentenced to 4-years prison but placed on 5-years probation.
 
Cerna appealed the sentence for Sexual Exploitation of Minor to the Missouri Court of Appeals of the Eastern District. His appeal was denied and the judgment and sentence was affirmed on July 25, 2017.

The final notation on the case was entered by the courts in September of 2017.
 
I filed a Sunshine Request to obtain the investigative report in September and received a copy of the report on October 13, 2017.
