Former Pocahontas Co. deputy pleads guilty to sex crime

Posted:

FAYETTEVILLE (WVVA) - A former Pocahontas County deputy has pleaded guilty to a sexual crime committed while working for the sheriff's department.

Bradley C. Totten entered the plea on July 12 in Fayette County. According to a release from the Fayette County Prosecuting Attorney's office, Totten admitted to having an underage victim perform oral sex on him -- while on duty -- in the fall of 2000.

Totten had been charged with various sex crimes spanning from 1999 to 2010 while employed as a deputy sheriff. In all, 13 women made allegations against Totten during that time, which resulted in numerous charges being returned against him by three grand juries in Pocahontas County.

Totten is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 20 in Marlinton. He faces a possible 10-20 years behind bars, and lifetime registration as a sex offender.
