Former Staunton Police Officer Denied Bond

Posted: Updated:

A former Staunton police officer accused of trying to solicit a minor online has been denied bond.   John Curtis Nuckolls appeared in Staunton Circuit Court Wednesday for his second bond hearing; Judge Humes Franklin Jr., denied the request.

In May, Nuckolls, who also served as a school resource officer for a time, was arrested in an online sting.  Police say after sexual conversations online, a meeting was set up with what Nuckolls thought was a 14-year-old girl. Instead, he was met by police officers, who arrested him.  He faces two charges of taking indecent liberties with a child and one for sexual offense over a computer.

Earlier this month, he was released on a $10,000 bond and was living with his daughter. But, after several messages went out from his Facebook account, the Sheriff's Office put him back behind bars. 

Nuckolls and his attorney argued in court Wednesday that his daughter sent the messages on his behalf to get some phone numbers, but the court ruled this was a breach of the bond agreement.

He is currently being held at Middle River Regional Jail.  His case is set to go before the grand jury in October.
