Officer accused of sex with a minor has a history of working with teenagers
A South Bend police officer, accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year old girl, had another job not long ago working directly with teenagers.
ABC57 obtained the personnel file of South Bend police officer Timothy Barber through a public records request. Barber is still on unpaid leave, while he faces multiple charges for sex crimes involving a minor. Shortly before SBPD hired Officer Barber, he worked for a year at First Baptist Church of Mishawaka as its youth director.
