|Banks: Busted on Sex Charges|
These allegations involve one girl who is underage and one lady who has reached the age of consent. The abuse of authority charge would suggest that at least one of the encounters involved Banks's official role as director of the Parks and Recreation Director. At this writing, Banks has not been fired by Mayor Arnell Willis and remains the Director. Sexual Assault is a Class C felony. The abuse of authority charge is a Class D Felony. Both are punishable by substantial jail time.

The general public will now await further action by Prosecuting Attorney Fletcher Long and Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Todd Murray, who now have the responsibility of taking these charges to trial and not sweeping these serious charges under the rug.
