Va. officer suspended after charges

Rocky Mount police officer has been suspended without pay following his indictment on a privacy charge.

The Roanoke Times reports that Officer Christopher G. Williams was charged Monday by a Franklin County grand jury with three counts of using a computer to invade someone's privacy.

The charges stem from a Virginia State Police investigation.

State police Sgt. Rob Carpentieri told the newspaper that Williams is accused of using a computer to examine and distribute identifying information about another person.

Williams declined to comment on the charges. His trial is set for Nov. 17.

Interim police chief David Cundiff says Williams was suspended without pay on Tuesday.
