Arraignment Scheduled for Former Officer


MEDFORD, Ore.– An arraignment is scheduled for the former head of Southern Oregon High Tech Crimes Task Force, Friday. The Department of Justice confirmed Thursday, there are now criminal charges filed against former Lt. Josh Moulin.

This all stems from an investigation that began in 2012. Lt. Moulin was placed on non-disciplinary paid administrative leave at that time, but details are still not being released about the investigation. Officials say an indictment was filed at the Jackson County Court in February of this year. Two counts of computer crime and one count of official misconduct were also filed recently.

Moulin reached out Wednesday with a statement that claims the charges are based on a misunderstanding of how he was supposed to hand over department equipment after being placed on leave.

    Generally it seems this task force usually does a thorough and good job. However, how about the unresolved rest of the ‘Operation Internet Angel’ child pornography sweep during the week of 10/17/2011? The suspect, who was the sole resident, at the Holly Street home raid in Medford. That raid is featured in photo number 2 of the ‘Neighborhood Watch’, article on 10/23/2011 in the Mail Tribune. That suspect already on felony probation fled, jumped statelines, and when finally apprehended close to 9 months later in Siskiyou County, CA in July 2012, on his warrant for absconding his interstate compact felony supervision when he fled the task force, tried blaming others in order to successfully escape the child pornography accountability. It seems it has been easiest for the current task force to just give up on their case even after they finally completed the forensic analysis several more months later in 2013, on his computers they seized in his home during that 2011 child pornography sweep, and found in their analysis the child pornography they had came to his home for and seized in the first place. I’m sure this task force must understand the strong and loud message that an ‘all you need to do to escape accountability’ type of decision would send to offenders. Whether Southern Oregon High-Tech Crimes Task Force will complete that job they started, after having found that child pornography, remains to be seen and this task force should not need to be publicly challenged to thoroughly complete that job.
