An Oakdale policeman is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl while employed as a police officer.

Authorities say 25-year-old Robert Tillis of Oakdale turned himself in Friday and was booked into the Allen Parish jail with carnal knowledge of a juvenile and malfeasance in office.

An employee at the Oakdale Police Department said she couldn't say Saturday whether Tillis has and attorney or whether he was still in jail.

Louisiana State Trooper Stephen Hammons says Tillis is not accused of using force, but the girl was under the age of consent. Hammons says detectives obtained evidence that the two had sex multiple times between June and December 2008, when the girl was 15 and Tillis was 23.

Tillis' family did not immediately respond to calls seeking comment.
