A former Stover police officer has waived a preliminary hearing and will be back in court on March 15.
22-year old Aaron Nelson was in Moniteau County Court on Tuesday after being arrested in January by the California, Mo. Police Department.
Nelson is facing six counts of statutory rape in the second degree.
Prosecutors say the incidents occurred at Nelson’s home in California, Mo. between April and November of 2012. All of the alleged victims are female. Two are 16 and one is 15.
Nelson is a former part time police officer for the City of Stover. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday morning and remains free on bond.
