Former Chief Timothy Boyer Arrested for Sexual Abuse
In a shocking case, a former police chief is in jail after confessing to sexually abusing a child for the last eight years--since she was eight years old.
Timothy Boyer was police chief of tiny Wynona from March 17 to June 16, when he resigned. Reports say that during his short tenure, Boyer wasn't popular with the town.
As it turns out, he had a secret: eight years of sexually molesting a young girl, now 16 years old. Boyer voluntarily turned himself in to the Sand Springs police department and admitted the years of abuse. He's in the Tulsa County jail with bond set at $200,000.
He's been charged with rape by instrumentation and lewd molestation of a child under 16. Boyer reportedly told officers that he performed "everything but intercourse" in his sexual acts with the child.
Boyer previously worked in two other Oklahoma police departments, as well as working as a registered nurse.
