North Dakota Police Chief accused of sex crimes

In North Dakota, there are many small towns that have only one member of law enforcement serving their area. In those cases, that person is one of great importance to the community that they serve. When that individual is accused of a crime, including sex crimes, that can come as a shock to those around them.

This may have been the case for residents of a local community who learned recently that the only member of their police force, the Police Chief, had been accused of sex crimes. In fact, the man was arrested by authorities as he testified in another matter at the local courthouse. The Police Chief was accused of multiple felonies that could, if he is found guilty, result in long prison sentences. 

The Chief stands accused of sex crimes, including those against a minor under the age of fifteen. The incidents are said to have occurred over a period of years. The claims come from two different counties in North Dakota.

The sex crimes that have been leveraged against the Police Chief are serious crimes that could result in heavy penalties if he is found guilty. However, like all in North Dakota and elsewhere, he is innocent until a court of law finds that he is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. In addition, the Chief is able to mount a defense against the charges that, if successful, could help to exonerate him. To ensure that he has the best possible chance at avoiding penalties, the Chief, like others in similar situations, may find it helpful to seek the advice of an experienced legal professional.
