HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

A Woodburn police officer faced a judge Tuesday on charges of sexual assault and the online corruption of a child.

Daniel Alvin Kerbs, 29, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment at the Washington County Courthouse. He was arrested on July 28, two days after he was placed on paid administrative leave by the Woodburn Police Department.

Kerbs has worked as a police officer with the Woodburn PD since January of 2015.

He is accused of six counts of sexual abuse, six counts of sodomy and the online sexual corruption of a child.

The Tigard Police Department conducted the investigation into Kerbs, and investigators said he knew the family of the young girl that was the victim in the case. While the court documents are sealed due to the involvement of a child, officers said the crimes occurred in 2013 and 2014 at a single location in Tigard.

Kerbs was released on bail, and the judge ordered him not to have any contact with children. Kerbs did request that he be allowed to have contact with his 2-year-old son, and there will likely be a hearing on that request at a later date.
