Ex-Clark County dog shelter worker accused of sexual contact with teen


A Springfield man has been accused of having sexual contact with a teen while working at the Humane Society serving Clark County.

Demetrice Green, 35, is charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. He pleaded not guilty to the charge during an arraignment last week and his bond was set at $25,000.

A Clark County Sheriff’s Office affidavit states authorities were alerted to the possible violations in October. Green is alleged to have carried on the sexual contact from January 2013 until last summer.

“A forensic interview of the victim was conducted at our Child Advocacy Center,” Detective Debra Strileckyj wrote. “Juvenile victim disclosed numerous sex acts had occurred with … Green at a location in Clark County where the defendant was an employee.”

Humane Society Executive Director Roger Ganley didn’t work for the animal shelter at the time of the alleged incidents and didn’t know any details about the case or the suspect.

Green was terminated in June 2016 from the shelter for not showing up to work, Ganley said personnel files indicate.

“(I) never met the individual,” Ganley said. “It’s sickening, whatever happened.”

Green was a kennel worker, Ganley said.

The court assigned Green a public defender, according to records. The sexual conduct charge is a third-degree felony and carries a possible penalty of 12 to 60 months in jail and a $10,000 fine.

Green is due back in court on Feb. 13 for a preliminary hearing.
