A man seeking to land a job with the Washington State Patrol instead landed behind bars on suspicion of child rape after making a startling admission during the hiring process.
The 31-year-old suspect was arrested on Tuesday and booked into the Thurston County Jail on two counts of rape of a child stemming from unspecified incidents that investigators say took place many years ago.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the unnamed man was applying for a civilian position with the agency at WSP’s headquarters in Olympia and was going through the standard background check and polygraph test process when he admitted something that sparked a criminal investigation, as KING5 first reported.

Officials have not disclosed the nature of the job applicant’s alleged confession, only saying that it ‘raised concerns of criminal activity,’ reported The Olympian.
At the conclusion of the investigation, the aspiring State Patrol employee was arrested for child rape.
Sergeant Darren Wright, a spokesperson for the WSP, told DailyMail.com by phone that the suspect’s name was not available as of Friday morning.
