An Oldham County Police officer was arrested Friday for allegations of inappropriate conduct with a teenager.
Harry “Shane” Mosley resigned from his duties as an officer for the Oldham County Police Department just a day earlier, pending an administrative and criminal investigation.
Mosley, 36, of Pendleton, is charged with unlawful transaction with a minor, official misconduct and unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activity.
Police learned of Mosley’s alleged behavior when a teenager called OCPD headquarters on Sept. 26.
The teen, a female juvenile, told police she was concerned because she had received text messages from someone claiming to be an OCPD officer.
The next day, Sept. 27, the teenager received further communication from the same person claiming to be an OCPD officer.
According to police, the texts included specific, graphic sexual references and other illegal and/or inappropriate communications.
Police identified the sender as Mosley.
He was arrested Friday, Sept. 28, transported to the Oldham County Jail.
Mosley posted $1,000 bond and was released within 30 minutes of his arrival.
Officials at the Oldham County Jail said the camera used to photograph inmates had malfunctioned and Mosley’s mugshot was not available.
Mosley’s charges include:
• unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activities;
• first-degree official misconduct; and
• third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.
He has resigned from his duties as an Oldham County Police Officer.
Mosley was hired by OCPD in November 2008.
