Former Wetumpka police officer indicted on rape charge

ELMORE CO., AL (WSFA) - A former Wetumpka Police Officer has been indicted on a rape charge that allegedly happened in 2018.

Chief Prosecutor CJ Robinson confirmed Nolan Mosley was indicted on first-degree rape in case that was investigated by the State Bureau of Investigation.

In the case, Mosley knew the victim but the two were not in a relationship at the time of the alleged offense.

Mosley is being represented by Trey Norman who said Mosley was "completely surprised" by the indictment. Norman cited the relationship between the defendant and victim.

Norman said his client is innocent and will work to be vindicated.

Mosley is now working in a private sector, but he did not leave the police department because of this charge, Norman said.

Originally the prosecution said Mosley was still an officer at the time of the incident in question. Robinson said Mosley left the force two weeks prior to the allegations and apologized for the confusion.

"The Elmore County District Attorney's Office later rescinded their initial statement that Mosley was an officer at the time of the allegations, now confirming Mosley left the force two weeks prior," said Robinson.

Mosley is currently out on a $40,000 bond.
