Sheriff Tim Guider announced the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) has charged and arrested Steve Nomic for one count of rape of a child and one count of statutory rape by an authority figure. On February 12th, the CID unit made the arrest after the victim came forward about having sex with Mr. Nomic. Sheriff Guider advised that the victim told investigators that she had had sex with Mr. Nomic on several occasions, and that some of the sex did take place while the juvenile was under the age of 13 years old, making it a Class A Felony with a minimum sentence of 25 years to serve.

Sheriff Guider also advised that when Mr. Nomic was questioned, he did admit to having sex with the juvenile on more than one occasion. Guider said the written statement was witnessed and audio taped by the CID Division. The bond for Mr. Nomic was set at $200,000 for the two charges. Sheriff Guider said that the investigation is continuing and more charges could be possible in the future.

The Sheriff thanked the Loudon County DCS for their assistance, noting that his investigators and the DCS office work together for the best outcome for the child and for the prosecution of the person responsible for such acts.
