Retired Colonial Heights police officer on trial

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A retired Colonial Heights police officer is expected to go on trial February 28.

He's accused of taking money for construction work his clients say he never finished.

Jerry Daniel Scott is charged with fraud in the city he used to protect.

Scott's alleged victims claim they were promised new weather-proofed windows. They say they paid several thousand dollars up front and trusted Scott because he was a former police officer.
