Administrative hearing set for former Chariton County deputy accused of child sex crimes  



A hearing on the status of a former Chariton County deputy’s peace officers license is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6, according to Administrative Hearing Commission documents filed this week.

Caleb Gibson, 34, was charged in January in Randolph County with two counts of second-degree statutory sodomy and two counts of fourth-degree child molestation. A warranted was served on Jan. 30 and a $25,000 bond was posted. A hearing in that case is set for 9 a.m. Monday, March 11.

According to a complaint filed with the AHC on Monday, Gibson’s peace officer license is active, but he was fired from the Chariton County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 14, the same day charges were filed. A social media from Chariton County indicates that he was hired in July 2023.

According to the probable cause statement, the victim spoke with law enforcement during a forensic interview on Sept. 7 and described assaults that they said started at the beginning of 2023, with the last assault occurring in April or May.
