SEQUATCHIE COUNTY CONSTABLE PLEADS NO CONTEST TO MISDEMEANOR CHILD AB– USE CHARGE

A Sequatchie County constable previously charged with raping an 8-year-old girl in 2013, has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of child abuse. 61-year-old David Broome was indicted in Sept. 2013. At the time, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) said the sexual contact happened between December, 2012 and January, 2013 at a home on Signal Mountain. Officials say that Broome has been granted Judicial Diversion in the case. That means that if Broome stays out of trouble during his probationary term of 11 months, 29 days, the arrest will be expunged from his record. That would also mean that Broome would not be placed on state Sex Offender’s Registry. Media sources report that the child’s family did not want to put her through the ordeal of a trial, which was scheduled to begin next month.

    Good, now men can go around raping eight years olds, be charged with only a misdemeanor, then after a few months have it all erased from their record. This should deter this type of crime.
