Officer charged with sexual abuse of 3 teenagers

MONTGOMERY (AP) — A Montgomery police officer has been arrested for the alleged sexual abuse of three junior high students, police said.

Police Chief Arthur Baylor said Cpl. Billy Doss, 46, is accused of two counts of enticing a child, one count of sexual abuse and one count of attempted sodomy of two 14-year-old girls.

Doss is also accused of one count of enticement, one count of attempted sodomy and one count of sexual abuse of a 15-year-old boy.

According to jail records, Doss has been released from the Montgomery County Detention Facility on a $110,000 bond.

Capt. Huey Thornton said more charges and victims are probably forthcoming.

An investigation began when principal Lorenza Pharrams alerted officers to the allegations against Doss.
