Former Political Candidate Wilcoxson Arrested

One More Arrest For Former Politician

NAPLES, FL. -- A former candidate for Hendry County Clerk has been arrested on charges of grand theft auto, a third degree felony.

Larry Wilcoxson, 35 was arrested and taken to the Collier County jail February 6. He bonded out the next day on $5,000 bond.

Wilcoxson ran for Hendry County Clerk of Court in 2012 against incumbent Barbara Butler. Wilcoxson has had several previous arrests.

Wilcoxson has a Master's degree in Divinity from Martin University, the only predominantly African America university in Indiana and a degree in Criminal Justice.

He was arrested in 2006 charged with three counts of child molestation in Indianapolis, Indiana. Wilcoxson was a substitute teacher at Longfellow Middle School. The alleged victim was a 13-year old girl.

He had previously been fired for allegedly exposing himself to a female school custodian at Indianapolis' Donnan Middle School while he was substitute teaching there, according to press reports.

In 2008, he was a defendant along with the Indianapolis School System and the Indianapolis Police Department in a Federal Civil Rights suit brought by Valerie Davis of Indianapolis.

In August 2003, Collier Sheriff's deputies arrested Wilcoxson AKA "Scooby" Wilcoxson for charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery with a weapon. He spent almost a month in Collier jail until he bonded out on $20,000 bail. The state attorney dropped the charges in October.

In 2006, Collier county records indicate Wilcoxson was the defendant in several traffic cases and a paternity suit.
