“PORT CHARLOTTE, FL. – Charlotte County Sheriff’s detectives have arrested a State Wildlife Officer they say was having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
In July 2012, investigators say they saw FWC Officer John Hoover leaving an abandoned house with a young girl. At the time, the 37-year old Hoover told them, he’d caught the girl inside with another man, and that he would handle the investigation. But new details surfaced in January that eventually led deputies to determine that Hoover had sex with the girl.
The incident that was almost swept under the rug, but after repeated questioning, the 14-year-old gave officials enough information to make an arrest.”
“According to the police report, the first sexual encounter happened in an FWC truck while the officer was on duty. They were parked down a dirt road near Collingswood Boulevard.
The second encounter happened at a vacant house off Foxglove Road. The report goes on to say the girl showed investigators the room where she and the officer would have sex.
She also said after one of the encounters she was given $160. The incidents resulted in Officer Hoover being arrested and charged with 2 counts of Lewd Battery.”

Ahh! The unimpeachable honor of Florida’s finest on display here.
In 2012 the FWC was given new police powers and they should soon be racking up all of the misconduct and corruption that the local P.D.s already are.
