Detectives with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Sex Crimes Unit have booked 38 year old Nathaniel Stephen Myers of Clovis into the Fresno County Jail on six counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14.
His total bail is set at $690,000. The Fresno County District Attorney’s Office has filed on the felony charges against him.
During the investigation into Myers, detectives discovered that during the last 18 years, Myers molested multiple children under the age of 14. He currently works as a local landscaper. Myers has also been actively working at an unnamed Clovis church.
A further search of Myers’ background revealed he completed the police academy in 2016. He tried applying for employment at several local law enforcement agencies, including the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office. He was disqualified for failing to meet the minimum hiring standards. His disqualification was not related to the charges he is currently facing as this is new information.
Detectives believe there is a strong possibility Myers has victimized other children, but those cases have gone unreported. If you have information of criminal activity involving Myers, please contact Lieutenant Brandon Pursell at (559) 600-8029.
