D.A.R.E. Cop Gets Decades in Prison for Busting Young Boys for Weed, Raping Them Afterward
“Your badge and uniform became weapons of your depravity.”
Doylestown, PA — The Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program could be referred to as an exercise in how not to convince kids to keep away from substances the state deems illegal. As cops hopped on their high horses and had children pledge not to do drugs, the rate of drug use skyrocketed — thrusting the country into one of the worst drug epidemics in human history. The hypocrisy of the cops who pushed the D.A.R.E. program has been well-documented over the years, explaining, at least in part, why the program was such a failure from the start. Now, another cop who pushed kids to ‘just say no’ has given D.A.R.E. a bad name for a totally different reason.
Warminster Township Police Officer James Carey swore an oath to protect the children of Doylestown, and instead of protecting them, this cop preyed on them. Adding to the insidious nature of Carey’s crimes against children is the fact that he committed them while pretending to be a role model as the school district’s D.A.R.E. officer.
As we reported in 2021, Carey, 54, was charged with over 100 counts. A grand jury presented a whopping 80-page indictment against Carey detailing 122 counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault, and other related charges.

As we reported at the time, police believed there may have been other victims, and there were. After yet another victim came forward, Carey was hit with a slew of new charges and now he’s pleaded no contest.
A judge sentenced Carey to 24 1/2 to 55 years in state prison before sending him off with a scathing rebuke.
“Your badge and uniform became weapons of your depravity,” Judge Wallace Bateman Jr. told the former Warminster Township officer. “You preyed upon the most vulnerable of the community.”
Carey was accused of raping multiple boys while working as the D.A.R.E. officer at elementary, middle and high schools in the Centennial School District. The incidents allegedly spanned the course of decades taking place between 1987 and 2009 and involved at least five boys, maybe more.
“Carey ingratiated himself into the lives of minor children, in particular, those who were already facing challenges in their lives,” the Bucks County District Attorney said in a statement, according to NJ.com. “He used his position and authority to groom, not only the children, but their adult caregivers. The grooming tactics he used were pervasive, manipulative and calculated such that he not only lowered the minor’s guard but also attempted to provide an assurance that his crimes would go unreported and if reported, not believed.”
Carey met his victims at school and would lure them to places outside of campus to prey on them, including on overnight camping trips to the Poconos and to Camp Ockanickon, a Boy Scout facility in Medford, Burlington County, according to the district attorney.
According to NJ.com:
In the case of the fifth boy, Carey offered the teen a ride home days after catching him smoking marijuana outside a recreation center, authorities said. Carey then sexually assaulted the boy in the driveway of the teenager’s home, according to investigators.
Rumors of the abuse began surfacing long before the investigation as Carey had a reputation for inappropriate behavior around male children which included inviting them to his house to get in his hot tub.
The investigation began to gain steam after a now-adult victim came forward in May of 2020 and claimed that he had been molested by Carey at a rec center in the township.
Carey would use his D.A.R.E. police officer status to prey on kids caught with drugs, giving them the ultimatum of sexually pleasuring him or going to jail.
One victim explained he met Carey in the D.A.R.E. program. One day, according to the victim, Carey followed him into the bathroom at school and told the victim he needed to search him after claiming to find a bag of marijuana. During the invasive search, Carey sexually assaulted the boy, forcing him to perform a sex act.
The other victims told similar stories of this predator cop who pretended to befriend them in order to force them to perform sex acts.
In a sick twist, prosecutors say Carey had a co-molester — a man identified as Charles Goodenough. The DA was forced to drop the case against Goodenough because after receiving a grand jury subpoena, Goodenough killed himself.
