WASHINGTON – The sexual assault trial of a former police officer has been postponed after a second victim came forward.
Joseph Ruhren, 42, also used to own the popular JoJo’s Ice Cream stand in Dumfries. Ruhren sold JoJo’s last November.
Ruhren is accused of assaulting a boy more than a decade ago.
The charges stem from allegations that he began sexually abusing the 12-year-old victim when Ruhren was a Dumfries police officer.
Ruhren’s trial Monday was postponed after prosecutors indicated a second victim — also a man — has come forward.
The case will go back to a grand jury, which will consider new charges against Ruhren.
