Ex-Belleville cop to appear on May 30th for shoplifting charge.

On Tuesday, May 30, 2017, a former Belleville police officer will appear before Essex County Superior Court Judge Martin G. Cronin for a "Plea Disposition Conference" regarding a summons-complaint that charged her with shoplifting a $50 bottle of tequila on December 31, 2015.

Background on this matter is on-line here.

The complaint-summons that charged Wanda I. Posada was issued on March 22, 2017, nearly fifteen months after the alleged offense.  Both the Belleville Municipal Court and the Essex County Criminal Division Manager's office, during phone calls today, said that the May 30th conference is the first scheduled event on this matter and that the matter is still active.

The public may attend this conference but should call the Criminal Division Manager's office at 973-776-9300 ext 56575 the day before the conference to ensure that it has not been postponed.  Refer to State v. Posada, Complaint/Summons No. 0701-S-2017-000212.
