Former Clinton police officer set to face judge


Former Clinton police officer Jerry Bristow is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in DeWitt County Wednesday.

Bristow is accused of stealing $1,500 in cash and six guns from a police evidence vault and then pawning them to pay off debt.

He faces eight felony charges, and if convicted could pay fines and possibly spend the rest of his life behind bars. Bristow has worked as an "evidence technician" at the police department since 2002.
