Trial for ex-West Sacramento police officer scheduled for September

By Darrell Smith

Former West Sacramento police officer Sergio Alvarez, accused of sexually assaulting women while on duty, will face trial in September.

The three-week trial is set for Sept. 23 in Yolo Superior Court in Woodland, according to court records.

Alvarez, 37, faces 35 counts including rape, sodomy and kidnapping in the alleged attacks on six women while on duty between October 2011 and September 2012.

The allegations came to light following a five-month investigation and a February grand jury indictment that led to the former officer's arrest and his removal from the force.

Alvarez remains held in lieu of $26.3 million bail at Yolo County Jail.
