Bushkill Township officer accused of covering up wife's affair with boy

VIDEO: Officer accused of covering up...

MOUNT POCONO, Pa. - A Northampton County cop is accused of trying to cover up his wife's alleged affair with a 14-year-old boy.

Officials say Bushkill Township Police Officer and Mount Pocono Borough Councilman Keith Transue never reported an alleged relationship between his wife, Robin, and the boy.

He's also accused of persuading the boy's parents not to tell the police.

Transue is charged with obstruction of justice and failing to report child abuse.

In a bizarre twist, his wife was charged previously with trying to hire a hitman to kill her husband when he threatened to report the affair.

Robin Transue was charged last year with sexually assaulting a minor.

Keith Transue is due back in court next month.
