RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A former Richmond police officer was sentenced to life in prison Friday for a sexual assault of a minor in November of 2015.
Charles Church was found guilty in July 2017 for indecent liberties with a child and one count of object sexual penetration.
During Church's three-day trial, the jury heard testimony from witnesses, testimony from expert witnesses, and examined multiple exhibits for the assault, which involved a minor under the age of 13.
According to the prosecutor at the trial, Church and the victim know each other.
Church was sentenced to a year for the indecent liberties charge, but that was suspended.
