CINCINNATI (AP) — A judge has set a trial date for a southwestern Ohio police officer accused of conspiring to smuggle marijuana across the country.
U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett on Tuesday scheduled the trial for Dec. 3 for Bryon Roos and 10 other men charged in the case.
Roos is a veteran officer in the Cincinnati suburb of North College Hill. He's pleaded not guilty to charges of money laundering, illegally structuring financial transactions, and conspiring to bring hundreds of kilograms of marijuana to southern Ohio from Texas.
He and the others charged were indicted in July after Roos told his department about the allegations.
North College Hill police have described Roos as a decorated officer who received a medal of valor for rescuing a woman from a burning home in 2011.
