Former APD officer gets new trial

Posted: Updated:

A former Albany Police Officer, convicted of child molestation in May 2010, will get a new trial.

Judge Stephen Goss signed an order granting a new trial for 47-year-old Vincent Wadley.

The ruling is based on impermissible statements made by the trial judge Denise Marshall.

Prosecutors say Wadley, a former Corporal in the APD Investigations division, committed a sex act with a 7-year-old girl in May 2008.

Wadley's new trial is September 26th. He is ordered held in jail without bond, because he is a flight risk.
