Former Moundsville police officer indicted on sex charges involving 15-year-old girl


MOUNDSVILLE, West Virginia — A former Moundsville police officer faces sex charges involving a 15-year-old girl.

Media outlets report that a Marshall County grand jury indicted 26-year-old Benjamin Davis this week on charges of third-degree sexual assault and distribution of obscene material to a minor.

A criminal complaint says Davis met the girl through a chat-based smartphone application. He is accused of having sexual contact with her at his residence.

Davis resigned from the police department in February.
