WOODBURY, TN – An arrest has been made in another case that involved a juvenile victim. The investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation into allegations of sexual battery against a juvenile, has resulted in the indictment and arrest of a Woodbury police officer.
TBI agents began investigating allegations involving Tommie Lee House. The investigation revealed that, earlier this year, House solicited an exploitative image from the juvenile victim and, on a separate occasion, had sexual contact with the victim while on duty. The department decommissioned the 38-year-old officer when the allegations surfaced and placed him on administrative leave.
On Monday (July 31st), the Cannon County Grand Jury returned indictments that charged House (DOB 9/4/1984) with one count each of Solicitation of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, Especially Aggravated Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, Aggravated Sexual Battery, Sexual Battery by an Authority Figure, and Official Misconduct. Authorities arrested House and booked him into the Cannon County Jail on a $75,000 bond. As of 8:30 on Monday night, House was still behind bars in Cannon County.
Also in the news, a former Rutherford County Corrections Officer has been arrested on similar charges involving a minor who was under the age of 13. See that news story HERE.
