A former U.S. Customs and Border Protection K-9 officer was sentenced to 10 years in prison on three counts of child molestation on Feb. 7 in King County Superior Court.
Christian John Hauserman, of Federal Way, will serve 10 years on each count concurrently in the Department of Corrections with credit for time served, according to sentencing documents. Hauserman pleaded guilty to the crime on Dec. 30, 2019.
He will also pay restitution in an amount to be determined at a future hearing, and must register as a sex offender.
Federal Way police arrested Christian John Hauserman, then 48, at the Customs and Border Protection office in SeaTac on March 20, 2019, according to charging documents. The investigation was initiated when an acquaintance of Hauserman notified police that he had allegedly molested her daughter for many years on countless occasions, beginning when the victim was about 6 or 7 years old, according to court documents.
Hauserman admitted to molesting the girl on multiple occasions, as well as exposing himself to her and having her touch his genitals, according to charging documents.
Hauserman was a CBP K-9 handler assigned to the Area Port of Seattle and was placed on unpaid administrative leave following the charges, and he later resigned.
