Bailiff Faces Child Sex Abuse Charges

A bailiff at the Kootenai County courthouse lost his job recently after he was arrested on child sex abuse charges. Jack David McPike, 31, of Athol, is accused of sexually abusing a girl from 2006 until this month, when the girl told a school counselor about the abuse and the counselor contacted the Kootenai County Sheriff's Department. Detectives arrested McPike in the parking lot of the Kootenai County Courthouse May 17. McPike had been a bailiff there since August 2011. A Kootenai County human resources employee confirmed today McPike was no longer employed as of May 18. She said she couldn't say whether he was fired or quit/Meghann Cuniff, Sirens & Gavels.
