Demers Charged in 2nd Molestation Case

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) – A retired Air Force lieutenant colonel and Boy Scout leader in the Metro-East is now charged with molesting two boys.

Collinsville police announced 12 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse were filed last Tuesday against 53-year-old Jon Demers of Collinsville.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports the St. Clair County state’s attorney filed four additional counts on Friday for the alleged molestation of a second victim.

Police have said the first victim was related to the suspect.

Demers remains lodged in the St. Clair County Jail on $1 million bond.

    How could this not have been uncovered during the numerous background chesks that go on in the military?

      I worked with this disgusting man, he was nothing but a grumpy old man…none of us suspected. He’s done this for 6 years, he served for well over 20, they wouldn’t have caught it back then.
