Cold Case Detectives Arrest Suspect Wanted for Sexual Misconduct

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) detectives have solved a sexual misconduct case when the suspect was arrested and booked on June 25, 2008.

The Robbery-Homicide Division’s (RHD) Detectives assigned to the Cold Case Special Section closed an investigation when Kimberly Hald was arrested and booked on charges for rape and kidnapping.  Hald was booked at LAPD’s 77th Jail Section with bail set at $495,000.

Last year, LAPD detectives began an investigation into allegations of inappropriate sexual relationships between Hald, a female Los Angeles County Probation Department employee, and juvenile males being detained at Eastlake Juvenile Detention Facility.  

The LAPD detectives worked closely with the LA County Probation Department and the District Attorney’s office, which resulted in a felony warrant being issued on June 24, 2008 for Hald, alleging 16-counts of sexual misconduct.  Hald, 35 years old, was arrested at her residence in San Pedro by LAPD officers.
