Nicole Graham:

The Pool Renter to Teenagers and Dog at Large Lady Now Has More Problems

Earlier this year the city had to deal with Nicole Graham who lives at 14 Long Meadows off of Clayton road near I-270. Graham was apparently a believer in letting her dogs run free. Some never came home after meeting a motor vehicle on I-270.

Over 2-years the city issued her 14 citations for Dog at Large, Cruelty to Animals, Leash Law violation and Resisting arrest. After the city’s lawyer filed for a court injunction Graham finally installed an electric fence to keep her dog, Archie, in the yard.

The City’s biggest concern was of serious crashes injuring people as drivers on I-270 or Clayton Road tried to avoid Archie.

Then in August Graham rented out her backyard pool to older teenagers for a party. On Sunday August 7 about 200 teenagers along with some beer and one stolen car showed up for the pool party. Town and Country Police then had to get assistance from Des Peres and Chesterfield to break up the party. Graham was not at home for the party.

Now Graham is facing more legal problems.

On August 10 the St. Louis County Domestic Violence Court issued a restraining order/full order of protection against her and for her ex-husband.

The John Low Case:
Sex Crimes and Kidnapping of a Minor

On November 3, 2022 the Federal Prosecutor’s Office in St. Louis recommended a 12-year (135 months) sentence to 38-year-old Chesterfield resident John Low of 15452 Millrun Ct Chesterfield, for driving to Manhattan, Kansas, picking up a 15-year-old he met on the internet, driving her back to Chesterfield where he kept her shackled in his basement where he raped her several times.

The FBI received a tip and with the Chesterfield Police on January 26,rescued the girl, who was wearing a dog collar at the time. We reported this in April when the Chesterfield PD included the arrest in the department’s monthly newsletter.

The case was originally filed in State Circuit Court but was then moved to Federal Court. The Federal recommendation is for 12 + years in prison.

The Presentencing Report gives the facts in the case better than any document we found. See the documents below.

David Cerna Case


FORMER CHESTERFIELD POLICE OFFICER DAVID CERNA, COP, SEX PERVERT, VIDEO PRODUCER AND WEBSITE OWNER! NOW READ THE INVESTIGATIVE REPORT

October 14, 2017 – KTVI newsman Chris Hayes got a tip and broke the case that someone was video recording people urinating in the men’s bathroom on the Mobil on the Run in Chesterfield on Clarkson Road. He turned his evidence over to the Chesterfield Police.

A thorough investigation determined that Chesterfield Officer David Cerna while on duty had been hiding a camera in the bathroom recording men’s penises at the urinal. The Mobil station was a favorite place for police officers to take a bathroom break and at least seven officers were also recorded.

A search warrant of Cerna’s house in Wentzville resulted in computers being seized. There the bathroom images, along with recordings of Cerna using a glory hole at his house and performing anonymous oral sex on people responding to messages on websites were found. All these images were placed on a website run by Cerna.

More troubling were secret recordings of officers changing clothes in the Chesterfield Police locker room, people, including juvenile males wearing sweat pants or shorts being frisked by Cerna and having their pants pulled out at the waist and their genitals secretly recorded by Cerna using a small recording device.

Cerna pled guilty to:

2 counts of Felony Invasion of Privacy in St. Charles CO Sentenced to 60 days jail.

Felony Invasion of Privacy Multiple Persons St. Louis County Sentenced to 4 Years prison but placed on 5-years probation.

Misdemeanor Invasion of Privacy St. Louis County. Sentenced to 1-year jail no probation.
 
Felony Sexual Exploitation of a Minor St. Louis County. Sentenced to 10-years prison but placed on 5 year probation term.
 
Felony Invasion of Privacy Multiple Persons St. Louis County. Sentenced to 4-years prison but placed on 5-years probation.
 
Cerna appealed the sentence for Sexual Exploitation of Minor to the Missouri Court of Appeals of the Eastern District. His appeal was denied and the judgment and sentence was affirmed on July 25, 2017.

The final notation on the case was entered by the courts in September of 2017.
 
I filed a Sunshine Request to obtain the investigative report in September and received a copy of the report on October 13, 2017.
