Ex-police captain faces more sex charges

Posted by Colby Rogers - email

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A 30-year State Police veteran was expected to turn himself in to authorities Tuesday in connection with an ongoing chesterfield sex investigation.

Former State Police Capt. Edward L. Hope of Goochland has already spent two weeks in jail and was released about five weeks ago.

The 52-year-old is now facing 12 additional charges including rape and sodomy.

It's unclear if the new charges involve the same alleged victim, who prosecutors say had been molested since age 8.
