  • JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A central Missouri sheriff facing charges that include harassment and stalking will appear in court in two weeks.
    The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports that Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon is scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 17. The Supreme Court has named St. Louis County Circuit Judge Richard C. Bresnahan as a special judge in the case.
    Dixon has called the charges "baseless" and said he plans to challenge them in a statement released through his attorney.
    The sexual misconduct and assault charges involve allegations that Dixon inappropriately placed a flashlight between a woman's legs. The stalking and harassment charges accused Dixon of making "numerous and repeated comments of a suggestive or sexual nature" about the woman.
    Osage County is rural and east of Jefferson City.
