Officer Andre Pino resigned five days after the Denver Police Department's Internal Affairs Bureau started investigating him for alleged criminal solicitation to commit sexual assault on a child, enticement of a child and sexual exploitation of a child.

The investigation into Pino is still ongoing, Mary Dulacki, Denver Manager of Safety Records Coordinator told 9Wants to Know Wednesday afternoon.

Court documents reviewed by 9NEWS say Pino's girlfriend suspected Pino of cheating on her. After she dropped him off at the airport, she went back to his house and searched his computer for evidence.

Court documents show she claims she found online chat conversations on Pino's computer. She described them as "horrific chat conversations." Then she downloaded the conversations to a removable drive and gave that drive to investigators.

Court documents detail alleged conversations between chatters in April and May of 2011 and April of 2012. Pino's girlfriend said he used the chat name caphillfun1979.

In one chat, Pino allegedly asked a woman who was baby sitting her five-year-old nephew to perform a sex act on her nephew.

Court documents say the conversation continued:

caphillfun1979: turn on your web cam so i can watch
sexymommy311980(removed by 9NEWS): OK
caphillfun1979: how old is your niece
sexymommy311980(removed by 9NEWS): One is 3 and one 7
caphillfun1979: you watch them both?

Four other conversations are detailed in court documents.

In one of those additional conversations, caphillfun1979 offered to sell a chatter, using the name tgirl_starlet, "coke" if she performs a sex act on him, according to court documents.

In another conversation with same screen name, tgirl_starlet thanks caphillfun1979 for something.

tgirl_starlet: thanks for that stuff, it was soooo good
caphillfun1979: no problem....you can make it up to me by finally introducing me to your friend

A person who identified himself as Pino, when reached by 9NEWS via text message, denied the allegations.

"It's not legit," the person who said he was Pino told 9Wants to Know.

Officers with the internal affairs bureau are waiting on evidence that has been requested, to see whether to open a criminal case, Dulacki said.

If a criminal case is opened, another law enforcement agency could be asked to investigate, she said.

Pino worked as a patrol officer in district 6 before resigning Oct. 24, Dulacki said. He started with the department in 2005.
