GLENDIVE - A former Glendive and Malta Police Officer who once ran for Dawson County Sheriff is arrested on child molestation charges.
27 year-old Taylon Bain faces four counts of sexual intercourse without consent, two counts of sexual abuse of children, and one count of solicitation of tampering with physical evidence - all felonies. Emily Boyles, with KXGN News in Glendive, reports Bain appeared in Dawson County Justice court yesterday.
The arrest was the culmination of at least two years of investigation. The charging documents identify four female victims between the ages of 13 and 16 from 2004 through 2009.
The documents allege Bain saved pictures of his alleged victims on his computer and phone. They say he met the girls through community groups he was involved in, including two through 4-H, one through a dance class, and one through Special Olympics.
Bob Norbie, President/C-E-O of Special Olympics Montana, commented on the arrest, saying, "We are deeply saddened to learn that Taylon Bain has been charged with violating an underage volunteer of Special Olympics and others in the Glendive community. As a volunteer, Mr. Bain passed all required volunteer registration and screening processes. Although we have *not been contacted by the authorities, Special Olympics will do anything it can to support the investigation into these serious allegations."
- This just goes to show you, many of those who commit sexual abuse are not on any registry, so background checks are pointless.
Bain is now held in the Dawson County Correctional Facility on $50,000 bond. Court records involving another possible suspect are sealed.
