FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Frederick County sheriff’s deputy faces charges of sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl.

The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday that Sam Bowman, 46, of New Market was charged Wednesday night.

Bowman didn’t immediately return a call to his home seeking comment. No defense attorney is listed in court records.

Bowman has been with the sheriff’s office since August. He was a school resource officer at Walkersville High School.

The charges allege he drove the girl home to Thurmont after school on March 9 and had sexual contact with her while her parents were away.

Police say they began investigating after Child Protective Services called with information from a third party.

Bowman is suspended without pay. He is charged with child sex abuse and a fourth-degree sex offense.

    If guilty, bad things are going to happen to this bird. On the other hand bad things will happen anyway. Anyone touching a child underage is a major no no & will be dealt with accordingly either by the law or some jailhouse justice.

    truthteller, what’s your deal? Is your true name Sarcasm. Say your comment and move on. It takes more than looks to be military and who said gjm was on the front lines, I didn’t see that comment.

    Like I said on the Baltimore City cop that was suspended with pay. This officer must have admitted to the crime but the BC cop denied it. I wonder if that play a part in if they will be paid while the investigations are going on.
