JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — In the case of a Jacksonville police officer charged



with sexual assault on a teenage girl, Channel 4 has now obtained the officer’s employment history with the sheriff’s office.

Donald Silcott, 47, is still in jail on $600,000 bond.He made a brief court appearance Sunday morning, one day after he was arrested.The records from the sheriff’s office show that Silcott has been with the department for 19 years.

In that time, there have been several complaints made against him, either by a citizen or a supervisor. As a result, he was ordered to take additional training or counseling a dozen times.

It’s a form of discipline.

Pittsboro – A police officer was arrested Tuesday after being accused of sexual misconduct with a minor.

Investigators say 33-year-old Scott Gabbei, an officer with the Pittsboro Police Department, allegedly sent text messages and called a 14-year-old girl, then hugged and kissed her. The alleged encounter took place around midnight on July 18 in Scamahorn Park.

“They went on a walk in a remote location in the park and at that location, an open mouth kiss and a hug took place,” said ISP Sgt. Rich Myers.

Gabbei faces a felony charge of sexual misconduct with a minor. He met the teenager when he worked security at a roller skating rink in Avon where the girl went skating. The two spoke, then exchanged text messages and talked on the phone. Finally, police say, he convinced her to sneak out of her Pittsboro home and go to the park.

The Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office was asked to handle the internal investigation which revealed four pieces of evidence containing over $3,700 in cash were missing.

Sheriff Edwards says Deputy Guillory was terminated as of Tuesday. Meanwhile, Vermillion Parish detectives continue to investigate the case.

Nathan Amosa, a former Hurricane police officer, was sentenced to 60 days in jail Wednesday after prosecutors say he demanded sex from a woman he had threatened to cite for child neglect while he was on duty.

In a compromise plea bargain, Amosa, 25, pleaded no contest in June to a charge of custodial sexual relations, a third-degree felony.

Fifth District Judge James Shumate on Wednesday sentenced Amosa to zero to five years in prison but suspended the prison term. The judge put Amosa on probation for 36 months, ordered him to get a psychosexual exam and to undergo any recommended treatment — in addition to the jail time.

However, under this law, Amosa will not have to register as a sex offender.

A former police officer admitted he stole $600 from a wallet during a drug bust and was allowed to resign after an internal investigation, but he faces no criminal charges, the Telegram & Gazette has learned.

Mark D. Berquist, when he was a patrolman, at first denied taking any money when questioned by supervisors about the missing money.

He later returned six $100 bills he took during a June 14 nighttime raid of an apartment, the address of which was redacted from a pages-long internal investigation.

Twenty-nine-year-old Justin Dean Sumner of Ketchum was charged with maliciously defacing property and malicious injury to property.

Dylan Johnson and his younger brother left home Aug. 3 for an afternoon of fishing at the beach.

They ended up trying to elude a man who threatened them with a pistol as they drove along Cervantes Street, according to Pensacola police.

The man accused of pulling the .380 gun is Deputy Joseph Dejoie, a 15-year veteran of the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office. He was off duty at the time of the incident and driving an Infiniti G35.

Dejoie turned himself in at Escambia County Jail on Tuesday after a judge signed a warrant for his arrest. He was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and released on a $500 bond.

Dejoie, who is assigned to the patrol division at the Sheriff’s Office, has been placed on paid administrative leave, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Ted Roy said.

OCALA, Fla. — A Marion County Sheriff’s deputy has been arrested for allegedly buying prescription narcotics. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement began investigating Deputy Rich Lohbauer in May after the sheriff’s office received a tip he may be buying pills.

On Friday, FDLE officers allegedly saw Lohbauer approach a woman’s car and make an exchange. After being stopped, Lohbauer allegedly admitted buying 16 oxycodone pills for $100.

Chief of Staff Tim Wilder says Lohbauer was a good employee, and the arrest shocked him.

[Yeah, he was an EXCELLENT employee.  ALL excellent employees buy narcotics illegally. It just goes with the territory.]

It was the second time in just over a week a Marion County deputy ended up in trouble.

Earlier, Darius Harper was arrested for allegedly soliciting a prostitute.

Stephen Merchant turned himself in to State Police at the Grant Parish Detention Center.

A Grant Parish Grand Jury Wednesday determined there was enough evidence that 28-year-old Merchant could be tried for manslaughter in connection with the July 24 shooting death of Harold Phillips.

According to the Grant Parish District Attorney’s Office, 54-year-old Phillips was shot five times as he tried to run from Merchant. The officer was on patrol for the Colfax Police Department when he came upon an altercation between a man and a woman.

MAGNOLIA — Delaware State Police Troop 3 detectives arrested Harrington Police officer Aaron L. Jones, of Magnolia, for allegedly inappropriately touching a minor female staying in his home.

This conduct reportedly took place between May and June of 2009, and not while Jones was on duty.

He was charged Aug. 4 with one count of endangering the welfare of a child and three counts of unlawful sexual contact.

Jones voluntarily turned himself in to authorities. Upon his arraignment, he was released on a $2,500 unsecured bond. Jones was also ordered to have no contact with the victim.

Because of the sensitivity of this case, and in consideration of the victim, only limited information will be released, state police officials said.
