Police Officer Investigated For Sexting Wife While on Duty

Waukesha Police Officer Chris Massa and Waukesha County Sheriff's Department Lt. Sarah Massa resigned from law enforcement positions after internal investigations were launched against them.

A Waukesha police officer and a Waukesha County Sheriff's Department lieutenant, who are married to each other, have both resigned from their positions after the husband, Police Officer Chris Massa, was accused of sexting his wife while on duty.

Chris Massa resigned in February before police could interview him about the allegations. Evidence found on Lt. Sarah Massa's phone showed that Chris Massa was sexting her while in private areas of the Waukesha Police Department while on duty, according to a news release from Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack.

Chris Massa faced potential departmental discipline, discipline that could have included termination for violation of departmental policies and procedures, according to Jack.

"I am thoroughly disappointed in Mr. Massa," Jack said in the news release.  "His actions tarnish the badge we are all proud to wear.  It is our professionalism that sets us apart and sets a high standard at the Waukesha Police Department."

Meanwhile, according to a WISN 12 News report,  Lt. Sarah Massa faced a potentially more serious investigation before she resigned from the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department. In addition to an internal investigation, she is also under investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Justice, WISN 12 News is reporting.

Sounds like all they can really nail her for is theft of aspirin.
