Cole County Circuit Judge Jon Beetem ..., 4 Oct 2015 [cached]
Cole County Circuit Judge Jon Beetem ruled Thursday the state made too many mistakes to revoke Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon's peace officer's license - without holding new hearings.
And Laura Garth, one of Dixon's attorneys, said Friday they needed to converse with Dixon before commenting on Beetem's ruling - but neither Garth nor Dixon provided a comment for this story by Saturday afternoon.
On July 1, 2014, Dixon pleaded guilty to one count of harassment in an appearance before St. Louis County Circuit Judge Richard C. Bresnahan, who had been assigned as a special judge in the case.
Based on a Missouri State Highway Patrol investigation and probable cause statement, Beger originally had charged Dixon, of Belle, with taking a four-wheel vehicle on June 26, 2013 - even as the owner told him not to - and with four misdemeanor counts, including harassment, stalking and first-degree sexual misconduct or, in the alternative, third-degree assault.
After accepting the plea agreement, Bresnahan placed Dixon on probation, with conditions that included:
In a footnote, Beetem wrote: "Whether or not … Dixon violated his plea agreement is not for this Court to determine.
"However, if either the (Public Safety) Department or the AHC wish to consider it as some form of estoppel … the Court would then be bound to consider whether or not" there is any legal consequence if Dixon had been told no one would go after his peace officer's license if he pleaded guilty under the agreement.
Had Dixon pleaded guilty to a felony charge, there would be no issue as state law prohibits felons from serving as a sheriff.
But the POST law also allows the Public Safety director "to discipline any peace officer licensee who … has committed any criminal offense."
And a misdemeanor still is a crime.
As part of the 2014 plea agreement, Dixon admitted to being involved in actions with a Belle city deputy identified in court records only as C.M. - including making "repeated phone calls to C.M., as well as repeated comments of a suggestive or sexual nature and touching or striking her genital area with a flashlight."
"(Those two officers), along with Dixon, all provided testimony casting doubt as to whether Dixon committed any criminal conduct. Dixon's opportunity to submit this testimony (to the AHC) should not be short-circuited by the deficient pleading filed by the Department."
In addition, Beetem ruled, the Public Safety department and the AHC made several procedural errors that violated the Missouri Administrative Procedures Act and, taken together, generally denied Dixon his right to a fair hearing.
• "Speaking with C.M. and consider(ing) bringing a complaint against Dixon as early as February 2014" - more than three months before the guilty plea.
• Allowing reporters (who were not named in the ruling, but included the News Tribune and KRCG-TV) to cover the disciplinary hearing "and the testimony of a (Dixon) political opponent who was not even called by either party to testify."
• Releasing "a statement to the media about Dixon's (license) revocation before he even received the Final Opinion" of that revocation.
Dixon first was elected as Osage County sheriff in November 2012 and took office Jan. 1, 2013.
That means he's up for re-election in the August 2016 primary and November 2016 general election.

Similarly, in 2011 Michael Dixon Jr., a basketball player for Mizzou and the Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year, was accused rape for the second time. In this event, the survivor's friends supported her and encouraged her to go the police, which she did.
Mizzou's sophomore guard ..., 11 Jan 2011 [cached]
Mizzou's sophomore guard Michael Dixon is putting up big numbers early this year.
Michael Dixon plays a team game but knows he wants to elevate his play this year.
"My role has changed from last year and I felt like I had to step up for my team to be successful," said Dixon.
Teammates love Dixon's style of play.
"I mean it just brings a lot of problems. It breaks the defense down, guys can't stay in front of him. It gives other guys a chance, when Mike goes by someone and they may have to help, it opens up a lot of easy opportunities for other people" said teammate Marcus Denmon.
Dixon leads the tigers with 22 steals this year and just over 4 assists per game.
The level of competition brings out the best in Dixon.
"It's just fun to come out and play against guys who are supposed to be All-Americans and NBA players and things like that. It's just a team thing; we all take challenge and compete against each other everyday," explained Dixon.
With an impressive 2.6 assist to turnover ratio, Dixon has earned the right to be one of two Tiger players to start every game.
"All these individual statistics and things like that are just a tribute to my team, so as long as we keep playing well, I'm gonna keep playing well," stated Dixon.
Look for more spectacular play from this young guard.
Through the first nine games, Dixon leads the Big 12 in steals and assist to turnover ratio.

Osage County Sheriff ..., 1 July 2015 [cached]

Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon is seated in Cole County Circuit Court Wednesday.
One year to the day after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor harassment charge, Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon was back in court in Jefferson City on Wednesday in a battle to keep his Missouri law officer's certification.
And, at the end of an 85-minute hearing, the first-term sheriff still has that certificate for at least another 10 days or so.
Cole County Circuit Judge Jon Beetem gave Dixon's and the state's lawyers 10 days to file suggested court orders and findings of fact for Beetem to consider in Dixon's fight to keep the state Public Safety department from revoking his license.
Former Phelps County Prosecutor John Beger, elected as a circuit judge last November, was named as a special prosecutor in the case and originally charged Dixon with a felony - taking a motor vehicle without the owner's permission - and several misdemeanor counts of sexual misconduct, third-degree assault, stalking and harassment.
All the charges followed incidents over a couple of days in June 2013, less than six months after Dixon took office as the Osage County sheriff.
As part of the plea deal offered in June 2014 and accepted by Judge Bresnahan a year ago, Dixon admitted to being involved in actions with a Belle city deputy identified in court records only as C.M. - including making "repeated phone calls to C.M., as well as repeated comments of a suggestive or sexual nature and touching or striking her genital area with a flashlight."
Dixon agreed not to deny or challenge the findings of the agreement.
Also as part of the plea agreement, the felony charge was dropped. Had Dixon been convicted of that felony, he would have lost his job immediately under state law.
But, Spencer Garth disagreed, "We believe that the evidence showed that, to the extent that the conduct occurred at all, it was not to the severity that was portrayed (and) that Officer Dixon has taken subsequent remedial (and) rehabilitative measures. …
