A Canterbury, New Hampshire, police chief accused of sexually assaulting an underage girl has waived his right to a probable cause hearing.
The Concord Monitor reports 44-year-old John LaRoche on Tuesday waived his right to the hearing, in which a judge determines whether enough evidence exists for the case to go to trial.
LaRoche is accused of pressuring an underage teen to perform a sex act on him more than 10 years ago while he was a police officer in Boscawen.
He has pleaded not guilty to aggravated felonious sexual assault and was released on $5,000 bail.
The charges are set to move to Merrimack County superior Court.
