A former Wheeling Police officer facing sexual abuse charges is expected back in court today.
A judge is set to decide whether to allow contact between former officer Phil Redford and the alleged victim in the case. Redford is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student at the Linsly School while he was head of security there.
Initially a judge had said Redford and the alleged victim could have contact but a day later, special prosecutor Joe Barki filed a motion appealing the bond modification which was granted.
Redford and the alleged victim are reportedly engaged. We’ll keep you updated on what the judge decides.
