Former candidate for Cabarrus County Commissioner was arrested and charged with statutory rape the same week his divorce was finalized. He could get 20 years.
Via Independent Tribune:
Chad Nevada Mockerman, 39, of Ravenscroft Lane NW, Concord, turned himself in to Concord Police at around noon Friday, a CPD official said. He has been charged with statutory rape and taking indecent liberties with a child stemming from actions that allegedly occurred in 2012.
Mockerman, who ran in the May primary for the Cabarrus County Commission, was accused of having sex with a girl who was less than 16 years old at the time of the alleged incidents in June 2012.
He was placed in the Cabarrus County Jail under a $250,000 bond.
It was a busy day for Mockerman, who also finalized the divorce from his wife on Friday. She was the person who reported the alleged 2012 crimes to Concord police on Aug. 17, eight days after Mockerman proposed to another woman in Huntersville, which was reported online by The Herald Weekly newspaper.

He touted his executive credentials but came in last out of seven candidates vying for three seats on the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners during the May primary. He had campaigned on business and school growth.
