AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — A former employee of the Logan, New Mexico Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department was found guilty earlier this month for one count of “indecent assault” in relation to a July 2021 incident.
Cox was found guilty of one count of “indecent assault” by a Potter County District Court on March 17, according to documents obtained by MyHighPlains.com. Cox will serve one year in the Potter County Detention Center and serve two years of probation.
