Trial date for police captain in child sex crime case set

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A former state police captain will go on trial for child sex crimes on May 2.

The trial date was set for Edward Hope, Jr., 52, today in Brunswick County. Hope faced similar charges in Chesterfield County.

That case ended in a mistrial back in May.

The girl's mother says the Brunswick charges stem from an overnight hunting trip Hope took with her daughter in 2003.
