Tolen Charged With Child Molestation and Sodomy

City Physician Dismissed by Mayor on Sexual Complaints

Former United States Attorney and former St. Charles City Council Attorney Eric Tolen has been arrested and charged with 18 counts of child molestation and sodomy.

It was reported that the alleged incidents involved two fifteen year old boys whose mother Tolen had befriended.

Tolen, of Town and Country,was held at the St. Louis County Jail in Clayton until he was able to post a $200,000 bond.

It was reported that the incidents occurred over several years.

Tolen is the second individual employed by the City alleged to have committed sexual misconduct.

Several months ago Mayor York dismissed her appointed city physician because of complaints of sexual impropriety.
