The disgraced colonel who was forced to retire after pleading guilty to sexual misconduct and driving drunk to his own arraignment is facing new charges for indecent liberties with a child in Quincy, Illinois as a civilian.

Todd Shane Tomko, 54, was thought highly of by many Marines until his life began crumbling apart. He was hand-selected by Maj. Gen. James Lukeman for command of the Corp’s Wounded Warrior Regiment in Quantico. There he faced charges of inappropriate contact via text and social media with enlisted subordinates, violating a military restraining order, conduct unbecoming of an officer and a gentlemen, possession of steroids and more.

Tomko pleaded guilty to “sending inappropriate and sexual messages to a female corporal, violating a series of military protective orders at Quantico, obtaining and using testosterone without a prescription, and driving to his May 6, 2016 arraignment with a blood alcohol level of .208,” according to Military.com

After Tomko was forced to retire from the Marine Corps, he became the pastor of Parkview Church in Quincy, according to their Facebook page.

Today as a civilian, Tomko faces seven felony warrants of indecent liberties with a child. He was arrested and is currently being housed at the local jail, according to the Quincy Herald-Whig.
