A Bothell police detective faces charges of sexual misconduct with a minor.
The Bothell Police Department confirms that recently Det. Dione Thompson was responsible for keeping the public informed of sex offender notifications. Before that she was assigned to the Bothell High School campus as a school resource officer.
During her time there, in 2010, a female student, age 17, says she was befriended by Thompson. They began to message each other on Facebook and eventually engaged in a sexual relationship with one of their encounters happening in a marked police car in a library parking lot, according to court documents.
The documents also said the student, who was dealing with turmoil in her personal life, even moved in with Thompson for a period of time.
