Ripley City Council unanimously voted Wednesday night to terminate Officer Denver Thomas.
That happened after Ripley Police Chief Raymond Fridley recommended that Thomas be dismissed from the police force. His termination is effective immediately.
Thomas had been indicted earlier Wednesday by a Jackson County grand jury. The indictment alleges he had sexual contact with a teenager in 2008.
Thomas has been on paid leave from the department since September 2009.
No other information is being released because the case involves an underage child.
