WACO (July 14, 2010)—Jeremiah David Beavers, a former Robinson police officer, will not go to trial on a three year old sexual assault charge.
Beavers was arrested in April 2007 by Waco police after a 30-year-old woman reported she had been sexually assaulted at a Waco bar.
On Tuesday prosecutors Beth Toben and Mark Parker told 19th State District Judge Ralph Strother district attorney’s office would not pursue the charge.
Beavers was terminated by the Robinson department after almost five years of service there following an internal investigation.
But in the interim, prosecutors never formalized a charge against him and his case was never presented to a grand jury.
Beaver’s attorney, Abel Reyna, sought to have the charge dismissed because more than 180 days had passed since Beaver’s arrest and prosecutors had not sought an indictment.
Toben said the charge carries a 10-year statute of limitations and it could be revived.
