Dean molestation charge arraignment next week

  • Follow Crime & courts

Former Columbia County Commissioner Scott Dean will return to court next week.

Dean is expected to enter a plea to child molestation charges at an arraignment hearing scheduled for Feb. 18, according to a court calendar released today.

A Columbia County grand jury indicted Dean on two counts of child molestation last Wednesday.

Dean is accused of having inappropriate contact with one of the five children Dean and his wife, Renee, adopted from Guatemala in 2008. They also have two biological sons.

He turned himself in to police Friday morning and was released from the Columbia County Detention Center that afternoon, after a judge granted him a $50,000 bond.

Dean resigned from his position as District Four commissioner shortly after the indictment, and a March 15 election has been set to select his replacement.

justsoyaknow......Just so you

justsoyaknow......Just so you know, when someone enters a plea, doesn't mean they are admitting to guilt. It is a term used "to make a statement on the charges" on whether you are pleading innocent or pleading guilty.

Hey, Bclicious, did you ever

Hey, Bclicious, did you ever find out about Scott Dean and the episode with the county employee that you were asking about often on the News Times? It appears you are expressing your opinion on his guilt or innocence here before the trial, which is your perfect right, but also something you apparently don't want others to do.

My opinion and prediction- He

My opinion and prediction- He will PB to something like CTTDOAM and get a suspended sentence and probation. He'd be foolish to do anything else and would be REALLY dumb, not to mention a total piece of crap to do that to his daughter, to go to trial.
However, having said that, if it were me, and I wasn't guilty of that evil crime, resigning a commission seat would be the LAST thing I would do. But that's just me.

@corgimom. O.K. Corgi, I give up. What does the acronym CTTDOAM mean?
