ST. LOUIS (AP) — A former prosecutor in eastern Missouri is accused in a federal indictment of making sexual contact with a woman who was a defendant in several cases he was prosecuting. The U.S. Department of Justice on Wednesday announced the indictment of James Isaac Crabtree on one count of deprivation of rights under color of the law, and one count of making false statements to the FBI. He served as the municipal prosecutor for Jefferson County, near St. Louis, until he resigned in March amid the federal investigation. He’s accused of kissing and touching the woman, then lying to FBI investigators.
