ANNISTON, AL (WBRC) - A former Anniston police officer has been charged with sexual abuse involving a child.

Thomas Gassaway has been indicted on a felony charge of sexual abuse of a person less than 12 years old. Officials say more charges could be filed in the case.

According to court recorts, it's a Calhoun County case being investigated by the ABI. But Gassaway is being held one county over in the Cleburne County jail.

Monday, Anniston Police Chief Shane Denham confirmed that Gassaway resigned in the middle of an internal affairs investigation.

Denham says Gassaway had been on administrative leave for a few weeks. Denham says he told Gassaway at the time that the department would do a fair investigation.

Gassaway resigned from the Anniston Police Department on July 23.

"My advice to him was, if he did anything wrong, he should just go ahead and resign, because we would eventually have to terminate him anyway. And if he did not do anything wrong, then we would stand behind him and support him as much as we possibly could. And we would just see what happened," Denham said.

Gassaway is being held on a $500,000 bond. He is due for a court appearance on Sept. 5.
