Roseville police detectives arrested 45-year-old Michael Scott Nodine (pictured) on June 26 on suspicion of sexually abusing a child over a period of more than 10 years. Since his arrest, he has been charged with two additional offenses involving the sexual abuse of children, according to a Police Department news release. He is being held in Placer County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail.
Detectives are continuing to investigate Nodine's activities and contacts with children, and believe he may have molested other youngsters. Potential victims may include boys or girls ranging in age from 5 to the mid-teens, officials said.
Nodine has lived in Rocklin and Roseville over the past several years when the abuse occurred. He also worked in Folsom.
Although his job doesn't involve working with children, detectives believe Nodine contacted his alleged victims through family or social relationships. He also plays video games and may have contacted children through Internet-based video gaming groups, officials said.
Detectives are concerned there may be additional victims and, if so, are hoping they will contact police. Anyone with information that would assist in the investigation is asked to call the Roseville Police Department's Investigation Unit at (916) 774-5070.
