CARSON CITY, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- News 4 has an update on multiple investigations at a Carson City counseling center the began about eight months ago.

Two investigations were launched last year at the Family Guidance and Wellness Network in Carson City. The former director, Erik Badgett, was the target of both investigations.

The Carson City Sheriff's Office has wrapped up its investigation, and turned it over to the District Attorney, recommending charges of Sexual Assault and Lewdness against Badgett. Sheriff Ken Furlong also asked for a warrant to have Badgett arrested. Furlong told News 4 there were at least nine victims who were identified during their investigation, who claimed they were victimized in some way.

However, the District Attorney's Office has decided not to file any charges in this case. Assistant D.A. Mark Kruger said there is simply not enough evidence to take the case to court. So it ends there, unless someone else comes forward, or more evidence is uncovered.

The Attorney General's Office has also been investigating the same counseling center. Agents raided the office in August 2013, and News 4 has learned through court records that Badgett has been charged with five felonies and one gross misdemeanor, including Medicaid Fraud and Identity Theft. The Attorney General's Office has requested an arrest warrant be issued.

As for Badgett, News 4 contacted the Family Guidance and Wellness Network on Friday. The person who answered the phone said he no longer works there, and then hung up.

Over 20 years ago I reported 4 pedophiles to the Carson City sheriffs office. The fat Sargent acted like he didn't want to be bothered. Nothing ever done about them so as far as I know they're still running around Carson molesting as they go. I guess with legalized prostitution the cops don't think child raping is a big deal? They just turn their heads and look the other way. So wrong to do nothing.
