082813 Palmer, Michael

ANGLETON — Former West Columbia police chief Michael Palmer spent one night in jail on multiple child sexual assault charges before bonding out Tuesday, but he could spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted on those counts.

A grand jury last week indicted Palmer on eight counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, one count of child sexual contact and one count of indecency with a child-sexual contact.

So he was found???


Put his picture out there so we'll know what this scumbag looks like. He just a ordinary civilian now. That's what you do with other scumbags like this one. I guess this is a case that he thought he was above the LAW ! What a disgrace you are Mr. Palmer.
