The former Warminster police officer accused of sexually assaulting numerous teenage boys over the course of 20 years will stand trial, following a lengthy preliminary hearing earlier this week.
James C. Carey, 53, is being held in the Bucks County jail on a $250,000 cash bail where he faces more than 100 charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and related offenses that allegedly occurred between 1989 and 2009, according to court documents.
During Monday’s four-hour preliminary hearing, Magisterial District Judge Daniel J. Finello Jr. heard testimony from four of the alleged victims and two Bucks County detectives.
Prosecutors allege that as a D.A.R.E. officer with the police department, Carey used his position to groom boys and then, after gaining their trust as a police officer, assaulted them.
