Sex assault charges on a child for Jacksonville cop
By Tiffany Griffith
Jacksonville, FL —
A second Jacksonville Sheriff's Officer is in trouble this week.
Investigators say they got a complaint that lead them to Officer Richard Cannon's home. Once, there he was arrested on 1 count of sexual battery on a child younger than 12, four counts of lewd and lascivious molestation on a child younger than 12, and two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation on a child older than 12 but younger than 16.
Cannon worked on JSO's Marine Unit until he resigned following the charges. He's now in the Duval County Jail.
