VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The trial for a former Valdosta Police officer facing sex charges will likely begin early this summer.

43-year-old Michael Linger was indicted by the Lowndes County Grand Jury Monday on two counts of sexual exploitation of minors.

Linger was fired in October after a two-year investigation by VPD, the Lowndes County District Attorney's Office,  and immigration and customs enforcement. Motions in the case are expected to be filed in April.

"After that, they would have an opportunity to file motions. The court will hear those motions sometime in the middle of April, and then the trial could be sometime early summer," said Brad Shealy, Lowndes County Chief ADA.

Linger is currently free on bond.
