VALLEY MILLS, TX  –  Former Valley Mills Mayor Rodney Nichols, 81, who shot himself earlier this year before officers arrived to serve an arrest warrant has been indicted for continuous sexual abuse of children.

The indictment, which the Bosque County Grand Jury handed up last Friday, alleges that from Nov. 15, 2018 through Jan. 6, 2019 Nichols had repeated sexual contact with a child younger than 14 and had sexual contact once with a second child.

The indictment lists seven instances in which Nichols had sexual contact with the first child and one in which Nichols had sexual contact with the second child.

The offense is a first-degree felony, punishable by five to 99 years or life in prison.

Nichols shot himself in the abdomen in June at his home in Valley Mills while family members present at the house, sources with direct knowledge of the incident said.

Nichols was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center in Waco and was in the hospital when Valley Mills police officers arrived at the residence in an attempt to serve the arrest warrant, but his wife was home and collapsed and died of a heart attack, the sources said.

He was taken into custody after he was released from the hospital, but was released after posting a $50,000 bond.

Nichols was charged in a child molestation case in 2005, but a Bosque County grand jury declined to indict him.

He was serving on the Valley Mills City Council at the time, but stepped down, citing personal reasons.

He was later reappointed to the council and served as mayor.

    1. Irene, Thank You so much for your input, I hope you know how much we care for you, and of course Dear Oden!!!! (Please don’t let on to him if I misspelled his name.) Irene, I wasn’t going to miss talking about him simply for my memory slipping, I knew you would correct me and enjoy me remembering him. You and I share such a love for animals, along with Children and our fellow human beings.
      As much as I wish I didn’t have to say this, the people that looked over this sewer rat molesting Children in 2005 should have to share his time in prison.
      I hope all is well with you and your Family!
      Sincerely,
      Robert
