A former New York City police officer, Shaun Frazier, was sentenced to eight years in prison, followed by five years of post-release supervision on Thursday, for sexually assaulting a child and endangering the welfare of three other young girls.

Frazier, 43, a resident of Brooklyn, was sentenced by Supreme Court Justice Donald Leo after pleading guilty to one count of first-degree criminal sexual act and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child on March 13. Frazier will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.

District Attorney Gonzalez expressed outrage at the severity of Frazier’s actions and the betrayal of public trust they represented.

“This defendant’s abhorrent abuse of young children is an outrage and marks a shocking betrayal of the trust placed in a member of law enforcement,” District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said. “With today’s sentence he has been brought to justice and held accountable for his actions.”

According to the investigation, Frazier, a family friend of all four victims, joined the NYPD in January 2015 and was suspended in 2019 following his first arrest. He subsequently resigned in November 2020. Prior to his time with the NYPD, Frazier had worked as a court officer for a decade.

The investigation revealed three separate incidents where Frazier exploited his position of trust and committed sex offenses. On Sept. 19, 2019, Frazier exposed himself and masturbated in front of a 10-year-old girl. In an earlier instance, between March 20, 2018, and June 15, 2018, he repeatedly exposed himself and masturbated in front of two girls aged 12 and 13. The most grave of Frazier’s offenses occurred in April 2017 when he coerced an 11-year-old girl to perform a sex act.

These incidents came to light when the children reported Frazier’s actions to their parents, leading to the start of the investigation.
