I heard a rumor while I was in Linn this evening that the new sheriff Michael Dixon has been charged with sexual assault and stalking.

Does anyone know if that is true?

I wasn't sure. I heard it was in Cole County. They said he assaulted a female deputy.

Where would you try to look it up?

I hope there is no truth to this. If anyone finds out for sure let me know.
Who could arrest him? I was told that only the corner could arrest a sheriff. Is that true too?

It's really a shame when our new sheriff isn't even allowed to carry a gun because he has a full restraining order against him. You know there is a lot of evidence against him if a Judge would order that!!

I regret my vote for Dixon and he needs to just pack up and go since he lied to all of us during the election. Saying he had intergity.

Step down Dixon before you embarrass our county even more!!!!

Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon, formerly of Franklin County, will be on supervised probation for the next two years for harassing a woman.
Dixon pleaded guilty Tuesday in St. Louis County Circuit Court to one misdemeanor count of harassment in a plea bargain that included dismissing a felony tampering charge for stealing a four-wheel ATV June 26, 2013, and three other misdemeanor charges including sexual misconduct and third-degree assault.
St. Louis County Circuit Judge Richard C. Bresnahan accepted the plea at the conclusion of a 10 minute hearing and issued a suspended sentence with multiple conditions that prohibit Dixon from using alcohol and requiring him to submit to sexual harassment counseling.
With the misdemeanor conviction, Dixon will be able to retain his office of sheriff, but could be subject to sanctions from Missouri’s Police Officer Standards and Training (POST) commission.
Dixon is the former police chief of Belle, Mo., and previously served as a member of the Washington Police Explorer Post.

ROLLA -- Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of harassment rather than go to trial on a variety of charges, from tampering with a motor vehicle, sexual misconduct, third-degree assault, and stalking in exchange for two years probation.

The stalking, sexual misconduct, and harassment charges stem from a complaint by a former female co-worker, and involved incidents that occurred on June 24 and 26, 2013, in which Dixon allegedly placed a flashlight between the legs of the co-worker, and stole her fiance's off-road vehicle after repeatedly demanding to know where she was.

Phelps County Prosecutor John Beger was appointed special prosecutor in the case by courts in Osage and Maries counties. The charges he filed were the result of actions he alleged happened between Oct., 2012 and June, 2013.

Beger said by taking the plea, Dixon, 28, will serve two years on probation, which includes the stipulations of no contact with the victims, regular drug and alcohol evaluations, sexual harassment counselling, and not violating the law.

Charges could be filed against a Mid-Missouri sheriff now that the Missouri State Highway Patrol has concluded its investigation.


Sheriff under investigation for harassment, stalking
Sgt. Erik Eidson told ABC 17 News the Highway Patrol's Division of Drug and Crime Control completed their investigation into Osage County Sheriff Mike Dixon.

Those results have been turned over to the special prosecutor, which is the Phelps County Prosecutor.

Sheriff Dixon is accused of harassing a Maries County woman. Courtney Duncan Mahaney claims Dixon stalked and harassed her.

Maries County Sheriff Chris Heitman said his office received the complaint from the Belle Police Department in June.

Heitman investigated the complaint then turned it over to the Highway Patrol Wednesday.

Highway Patrol Sgt. Paul Reinsch told ABC 17 News that the Maries County Sheriff asked the patrol to begin the investigation.

Reinsch says once the patrol completes a preliminary investigation, they will determine if a full investigation is warranted. There is no word on when the investigation will be completed.

Sheriff Dixon was formerly the police chief in Belle.
