WASHINGTON (AP) A chief in Florida has been charged with sex crimes after investigators say he molested several women while on duty.
The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office says the chief of the county’s police department was arrested Friday on suspicion of multiple counts of sexual misconduct against a female, including three counts of lewd conduct and one count of rape.
The sheriff’s office says deputies were called to the home in Greenville, Florida, in September to investigate a complaint of alleged inappropriate touching by the chief.
Investigators say the chief allegedly touched the female, who was not his wife, and forced her to perform oral sex on him while he watched from a back porch.
The deputies say he then took photos of her and then gave them to investigators.
Sheriff’s officials did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
