According to the Reeves County Sheriff’s Office, Joseph McCormick, 35, was indicted on aggravated sexual assault and indecency with a child, sexual contact on October 13. McCormick, who had short stints with both Reeves and Culberson County EMS more than 7 years ago, had been previously arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault on December 2015, bonding out quickly on a $50,000 bond after an investigation of allegations involving a 12-year old child on November 23, 2015.
A statement from the Reeves County Sheriff’s Office included a re-assurance to the citizens of Reeves County that although they received confirmation that McCormick was a Boy’s Scout Headmaster, the case is currently an isolated one and the victim was not a boy scout.
After being indicted, McCormick had been re-arrested on a charge of indecency with a child and is currently out on bond pending his court date.
