BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A judge has ordered a Trumbull police officer charged with sexually assaulting a teenage girl to stay in Connecticut after new information in the case was discovered.

Assistant State’s Attorney Tatiana Messina would not comment on the new information, but urged state Superior Court Judge Earl Richards to order the restriction over the objections of William Ruscoe’s lawyer.

The Connecticut Post (https://bit.ly/1igOYOi ) reports that the defense attorney says Ruscoe “denies the allegations.”

Authorities say the 44-year-old Ruscoe began texting the 17-year-old girl last March that he wanted to have a sexual relationship with her and then texted her naked photographs of himself and his wife. He allegedly sexually assaulted her at his home. They met at a police cadet program for high school students.
