Madison Police Officer charged with sexual misconduct
MADISON – The Madison County Sheriff’s Office said Monday evening that a Madison Police office has been charged with sexual misconduct in connection with an incident that happened last November.
According to press release from sheriff’s office, they were contacted by Madison Police about an incident involving officer Kevin O. Walter, 35. “Madison Police asked the MCSO to conduct the investigation because it involved an off-duty employee,” the sheriff’s office stated. “After the investigation was complete, Madison County Sheriffs investigators forwarded the case to the Madison County District Attorney’s Office for further review.”
The case was recently presented to a Madison County Grand Jury and a sexual misconduct warrant was issued.
According to WAFF 48, court documents reveal that Walter and the victim knew each other and allege that he engaged in intercourse with the victim while she was inebriated.
Walter turned himself in on Feb. 8 and bounded out for $1,000. At this time Walter is on administrative leave and is scheduled to have a felon examination on Mar. 1 at 10:30 a.m.
