LA GRANGE, KY (WAVE) – An Oldham County police officer is facing both criminal and administrative charges after being accused of sending suggestive text messages to a juvenile.

According to a press release, Oldham County Police were contacted on September 26 by the juvenile, a female, who said she had received text messages from someone claiming to be an Oldham County officer.

The girl told police she was contacted again the next day by the same person, but this time the messages contained "specific, graphic sexual references" and other communications said to be illegal or inappropriate.

Oldham County Police said their investigation was able to identify the person sending the messages as Officer Shane Mosley.

An arrest warrant was issued for Mosley charging him with unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor or engage in sexual or other prohibited activities, official misconduct and unlawful transaction with a minor.

Mosley was arrested on Friday and booked into the Oldham County Jail. Officials said he immediately resigned from the department.
