Posted: Updated:

A former Chester and New Cumberland, West Virginia police officer who turned himself in on a felony warrant after he allegedly sent a nude picture of himself via cell phone to a 16-year-old girl, made his first appearance in magistrate court on Friday morning.

Eric Maruca, 26, of New Cumberland, faces one count of distributing obscene matter to a minor, a felony that can bring a fine of up to $25,000 and a prison sentence of up to five years.

On Friday, his case was continued to November 15 at 10 a.m. due to Maruca not having an attorney assigned to his case.
