Former Park Hills Police Officer has Jury Trial Set on Sexual Abuse & Child Molestation Charges
(Farmington) A man from Potosi, who has been a former police officer at three different departments and a county commissioner, has a new trial date for his child molestation and two sexual abuse charges out of St. Francois County.
44-year-old Todd Moyers’ jury trial will now be November 1st and 2nd with his case to be reviewed on October 15th.
The probable cause statement said Moyers engaged in sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl between March and August of 2018.
At the time, Moyers was still an officer with the Park Hills Police Department.
He was fired from that job in November of 2018.
Court documents say Moyers allegedly coerced the girl to send him nude photos of her and he would drop a citation against her for trespassing.
Moyers also allegedly met the girl at the Park Hills Sports Complex and at St. Joe State Park while he was a police officer.
The victim said Moyers kissed her and touched her inappropriately.
Records show 250 text messages were exchanged between Moyers and the victim.
Moyers also worked as an officer for the Potosi Police Department, was a deputy for the Washington County Sheriff’s Department and also served for a few years as a Washington County commissioner.
