Former police officer faces new sex assault charges
PAWTUCKET, R.I. —
Former Pawtucket Police Officer Stephen Ricco will be back in court Thursday.
Ricco is facing assault charges for the second time. The former cop will appear in court for a status conference to address new sexual assault and domestic assault charges filed against him on Thanksgiving Day.
Ricco resigned from Pawtucket police after his first arrest. Officials said he didn't have enough years to qualify for a pension.
