Alabama sheriff caught running pedophile ring

An Alabama sheriff is under investigation for running a pedophile ring in the early 90’s when he was commander of the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office’s drug task force. 

According to victim Mary Elizabeth Cross, the sheriff of Etowah County, Alabama, regularly had sex with multiple underage girls at ‘pedophile parties’ where other law enforcement officers were present. reports: The woman’s claims were classified as alleged second-degree rape in an incident report, according to Cross said she did not rebuff his advances, but alleged she saw Entrekin rape another underage girl who said no. The incidents allegedly occurred at parties Entrekin threw for other law enforcement officers where drugs were present.

“Todd Entrekin denies, in its entirety, every allegation or factual statement made in the article,” his attorney, Donald Rhea, said in a statement sent to HuffPost.

Entrekin has worked in the Etowah County sheriff’s office in various capacities since 1982 and was appointed sheriff in 2007. (He lost the Republican primary in June, following a completely different scandal involving a beach house.) The seat of the county is Gadsden, a small town of about 35,000 people and the hometown of Roy Moore. Cross noted that her mother used to think she was going to the Gadsden Mall when she would go out — the same mall where, more than a decade earlier, a woman said Moore first approached her when she was 14. Moore has denied the allegations against him.

Moore has had a long legal career in the county, including as deputy district attorney starting in 1977, and as a judge of the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit from 1992 to 2000. It’s unclear if he and Entrekin ever crossed paths, but one of Moore’s sons appears to have briefly worked for Entrekin. Entrekin — along with other sheriffs in the state — endorsed Moore during the judge’s run for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat.

Moore and his son did not respond to requests for comment.

Shortly after the first sexual misconduct allegations against Moore surfaced, Entrekin said he would withdraw his endorsement if the allegations proved true, and that he would “always stand by the victim of any crime,” Entrekin did not comment on whether he had withdrawn that endorsement.

In January, Entrekin’s office also helped investigate a fire at the house of Tina Johnson, one of Moore’s accusers. Johnson said Moore groped her when she was 28. (Moore did not respond to HuffPost’s request for comment on that claim.)

The fire took place on Jan. 3. On Jan. 5, Entrekin’s office put out an “arson investigation” statement that noted they were speaking to a “person of interest,” but “the ongoing investigation does not lead us to believe that the fire is in any way related to Roy Moore or allegations made against him.” A spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office told HuffPost it was still their position that the fire had nothing to do with Moore.

Johnson provided HuffPost with a Gadsden Fire Department report dated March 21, 2018, where an investigator noted that a wall-mounted space heater could “not be ruled in or out” as starting the fire “without further scientific testing.” Nor could the investigator rule out “the possibility of an intentionally set fire.” As a result, the investigator said, the fire was classified as “undetermined in nature.” No charges were brought, according to

The Oneonta Police Department, which is reportedly investigating the claims against Entrekin, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Entrekin wants the State Bureau of Investigation to thoroughly investigate the claims against him, and stands ready to cooperate, his attorney said.

“That is what innocent people do,” the attorney said.
