FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A former Frederick County sheriff’s deputy has a January trial date on charges he sexually abused a 14-year-old girl.

Sam Bowman, 46, of New Market had a pretrial conference Monday afternoon in Frederick.

He faces three counts of fourth-degree sex offense and one count of sexually abusing a minor.

Bowman was a school resource officer at Walkersville High School. He allegedly had sexual contact with the ninth-grader after driving her home from school in March.

    There seems to be allot missing from this story, but I do understand because it’s a minor concerned. I’m curious to how he’s going to plead. I remember years ago a 12 year old girl developed a crush on me. My wife watched her after school until her mom came home. She followed me into my bedroom once and I couldn’t get out of that room fast enough! I told my wife she needs to keep the girl in her eyesight. I wasn’t tempted, but I didn’t want to be in a situation that could look suspicious even for a few minutes. If the Deputy is innocent, he still is guilty of poor judgment. If he is guilty shame on him and he gets what he gets.
