On Wednesday, February 2, 2022 the Midland County Sheriff’s Office arrested Thomas Scott Valley, a 59-year-old Lee Township male, after an investigation into a complaint of Criminal Sexual Conduct. Mr. Valley was charged by the Midland County Prosecutor’s Office with 1 count of Criminal Sexual Conduct - 3rd Degree, with the victim being between the ages of 13 and 15 years-old, and was arraigned on February 3rd. He is currently being held at the Midland County Jail on a $500,000 cash or surety bond.
The investigation surrounding Mr. Valley is ongoing, as the Sheriff’s Office has received information indicating that there may be additional victims. While it was reported by the Midland Daily News in an article on February 7th, 2022 that Mr. Valley was a former maintenance worker for Meridian Public Schools and was currently employed at the Arnold Center in Midland, the Sheriff’s Office currently has no information that any inappropriate physical contact occurred with any individuals at either of these locations.
A criminal charge is an allegation of a criminal law violation and all persons are presumed to be innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
The Midland County Sheriff’s Office asks that anyone with additional information contact Detective Scott Holzinger at 989-839-4619.
