I've been keeping an eye on this case -- today's new news is that this POS has been charged w/ add'l counts of child rape on a different victim....details of how he had access to these girls is in the arrest report but **warning -- graphic** details...I'm guessing people thought this pig was "such a nice guy" because he liked being around kids, babysitting, etc...ugh.

A Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s lieutenant who has been in jail since Tuesday is facing additional charges.

John Mitchell Tomlinson, 46 of Navarre, was charged with five counts of sexual battery on a new victim, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Tomlinson was initially arrested Tuesday for 120 counts of sexual battery on a child between the ages of 12 and 18. He will be tried in Walton County because he was the head of Santa Rosa County’s court security when he was arrested.

Sheriff Wendell Hall placed Tomlinson on paid administrative leave when he was arrested, according to Marc Ward with the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office.

Tomlinson is expected to remain on leave until the criminal process is resolved, he said.

"If these allegations are true, I will be very disappointed in Lt. Tomlinson’s behavior," Sheriff Wendell Hall said in a statement. "However, if he’s found guilty he should be punished like any other person that commits this type of crime."

When questioned about why Tomlinson was not put on leave when the allegations came to light back on March 3, Ward declined to comment. Ward said he would provide an answer at a later date. At press time, the question remained unanswered.

Tomlinson’s arrest marked the 33rd sexual offense logged by the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office this year.

There could very well be more vics, IMO

With new allegations coming to light, not sure how many victims there might be, neighbors say Tomlinson's house was frequented by children ranging in age from 8-12, sometimes even older, no parents were ever seen, and they don't know who these kids were.

No sex crimes against children's case is complete w/o those who will defend a child raper because he's a nice guy, and of course, the children are lying.....and the other good one -- the mother put them up to this...I'm sure it's only a matter of time before "The McMartin Trial" gets thrown into the mix for good measure....I swear -- that must be the only CSA case anybody ever paid attention to!! :mad:

Interesting that all of the recent links have been disabled. You can no longer access the arrest report, nor any of the comments that Texas Mist referenced.

TM - people will cling to anything which allows them to continue deluding themselves....IMHO.

I just tried again and the article link worked fine, but the arrest report link in the article did not.

Gosh, he's a slobby looking man. :sick:

Thanks Texas Mist. I was starting to think the reports were being deep-sixed on purpose by someone wishing to protect the perp.

Neither of the links in Post #4 work but the others did for me. I'm really shocked at the number of LEOs who are allowed to retire just prior to arrest or who are kept on administrative leave. Remember Chris Bowersox of Bakersfield, CA. He was allowed to retire just prior to being arrested for child porn charges and comments likening himself to Dahmer. I don't get it either.

I wonder if some of the info has been removed due to a continuing investigation?

ITA, TM, about the oft-tried but oh-so-tired comments about being "such a fine man", "so good with the kids", "kept such a nice yard". I'm sure an ex-wife or girlfriend put the kids up to this and their disclosures were tainted, too. I know!! The guy refused to let them watch an R rated film and so they all got together and cooked up this story. No doubt.

A person's looks really shouldn't matter but this man looks scary to me. I can't imagine why kids would have been drawn to him unless he was bribing them with something. Many pedophiles ARE actually welcoming and kind and pleasant looking--they sure don't have horns. This guy looks creepy, though, like Bradley looks (note: I am no longer using the doctor title as he has lost his license). That's what makes me think he sweetened the deal a bit to get the kids in the door. Being that most were teens, it could have been alcohol, pot, porn, or videos.

See if this link works for the arrest report:

Once again, please heed Texas Mist's warning that the Arrest Report is graphic and has lots of triggers in it.

Oh yeah, those children made up all those details. My heart broke when she described feeling "so gross". How I hope she reads this thread someday.

Sweetheart, you are not in the least gross. You are brave and beautiful and strong!! Your body belongs to you and it is within your power to heal it. Now that you are away from that monster, you are totally pure and have total control over whom you choose to share love. And you are very deserving of love.

Blessings and prayers to you.

Former deputy convicted of child sex battery, faces 90 years

Daily News

MILTON — A former Santa Rosa County sheriff’s deputy accused of child sexual battery was convicted Wednesday by a jury at the courthouse where he once served as head of security.

John Mitchell Tomlinson was found guilty of three counts of sexual battery by a custodial authority on a person over the age of 12 and under the age of 18, state attorney Bill Eddins said. The former sheriff’s lieutenant faces 90 years in prison and a future trial on more sex crime charges.

“We feel that because of his position of trust in law enforcement and the ongoing nature over many years of this sexual misconduct, we’re gonna ask the judge to impose the maximum penalty,” Eddins said. “We do not believe he should ever walk the streets of the community as a free man again.”

I hope he suffers for every one of those years that he is in prison too.

Me too - and you know he will!! A cop and former security director of this jail?...probably already well-despised by some inmates...and a child rapist to boot? He won't have that bulletproof vest to hid behind on the inside! Useless pile of sick.

I nearly wept reading the arrest report. Six years old and seeing your mother die, your abusive father give you up, and then to go on to endure all these atrocities for years at the hands of this vile beast. What could be left of her...I hope she finds the remnants and can go on to build a better life.

The report was heartbreaking.
How did this girl end up in his clutches?The report is redacted but it seemed he is apparently related to the victim's abusive father.....I do wonder how.
Also she did disclose to someone who also lived in the home.
I'm assuming his wife or girlfriend as that person stated she thought he spent more time with the victim than he did her .....that seemed *****y didn't it? WTF! She also had a gut feeling something was off about his interactions with the victim but apparently his denials when confronted were enough though for her to not report it though.Shame on her!
I hope the residents are up in arms regarding this slob being on paid leave!Shame on the police chief too!
