Officer William Byrom

CRAWFORD — A Crawford police officer who’s charged with indecency with a child by contact fondled the breasts of a girl younger than 17 on several occasions and as recently as September, according to an arrest warrant affidavit released Wednesday.




Texas Rangers arrested Crawford Officer William Byrom, 28, Tuesday.

Byrom was free on $20,000 bond Wednesday.

According to the affidavit, Byrom touched the victim’s breasts on four or five occasions in 2013 both over and under clothing.

Byrom admitted to an investigator last Friday that he placed his hands under the victim’s shirt and touched her breasts once in late 2012 or 2013, the affidavit said.

“Byrom could not recall the approximate date—only that it was cold weather,” the affidavit said.

The victim underwent a forensic interview on Monday at the Waco Child Advocacy Center, the affidavit said.

Crawford police Chief Clay Bruton said he began an investigation on Oct. 21, after the allegations surfaced, and after that he contacted Rangers for assistance.

“This is something that no chief ever wants to have to handle or deal with. This is something I do not tolerate,” Bruton said.

Byrom was placed on administrative leave last Thursday and will remain on paid leave until the City Council meets next week at which time a decision could be made about his continued employment, Bruton said.

    This is disgusting. What is more disgusting is that police that molest children usually get probation or just lose their job. Then they hire in at the next town as a policeman and start over again. What would earn a normal citizen 15 to 20 years in prison gets a policeman a slap on the wrist….. What is there to decide??? And the police want the public to give them full respect. They don’t respect anyone……. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tribute-to-survivors-of-child-sexual-assault-by-law-enforcement-officers/180584842010594 One out of ten child molesting police actually receive any punishment of any magnitude…

    very poorly written report, you’re title is misleading, first of all, did he harass some girl randomly or what?

    because if it was a girlfriend then….
    why was he arrested just for touching some girl? was it a girlfriend or just some chick? you said little girl then i see you write under 17. you wanna give a real age or what?. idk you wanna elaborate here? im sure there’s plenty of reasons to hate this guy but if you are hating just because he touched some high school chick that sounds kind of stupid. “Indecency” sounds like an extremely opinionated law created by a bunch of fascist close minded christians. hell i like yours guy website just dont post misleading shit please. just say the gu

      Nice reply and twisting of the story COP…..If she was 16, it would still be illegal if it was against her consent…..and could still bring lesser charges if she consented….and I doubt she did if she filed charges against him…..Were you his partner before he was arrested?…..I bet you enjoyed it when he fondled your junk!

    yup, “this is something I will not tolerate” unlike the shooting and brutalization of innocent civilians, and the raping of adult civilians……but I guess at least he has a big enough conscious, to understand this cop was wrong.
