A Stuarts Draft man known in the community as a former radio host and Augusta County school worker was arrested Wednesday on multiple child sex charges.

Kristofer Neil Losh, 44, of Stuarts Draft, was arrested by the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office on four counts of sexual battery and four counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor. He is being held at Middle River Regional Jail without bond.

Losh, formerly employed by Augusta County Public Schools, also worked as a radio personality in Staunton for a long period of time.

The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office with Child Protective Services, Shenandoah Valley Department of Social Services and the Augusta County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office The began investigating Losh in June after receiving a sexual assault complaint involving an underage boy, officials said.

Investigators conducted a forensic interview of the victim child, as well as a second juvenile victim whose identity had been discovered during the course of the investigation.

Although there is no evidence of sexual conduct at the school or with the students where Losh was employed, investigators said there might be other victims.

“The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office is very concerned that other victims may be in the community based on Losh’s involvement with children,” Sheriff Donald L. Smith said.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office at (540) 245-5333.
