Pre-Trial Hearing For Officer Accused In Sex Case 3-14-2011

The Midland police officer facing several charges, including sexual assault and extortion, could be in court on Monday.
That officer, Jeffrey Doyle, is scheduled for a pre-trial conference at 4 p.m.
Defense attorneys and the prosecution will determine at that time if the case goes to a probable cause hearing.
If it does, that hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
Midland County Prosecutor Michael D. Carpenter said last week that Doyle is facing one count of extortion, third-degree criminal sexual conduct, fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of obstruction of justice.
Doyle, 39, has been with the Midland Police Department for 18 years.
At that time, Carpenter did not comment on specifics but said the victim is a woman.
"The investigation was done thoroughly, professionally, it was amazing," Carpenter said. "When this gets to trial, we're able to comment specifically about those things."
Doyle has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the criminal investigation.
TV5 obtained a copy of the felony complaint. It alleges that, on Feb. 15, Doyle forced a woman to perform a sex act. It also alleges that Doyle had reason to know the victim was physically helpless, mentally incapacitated or mentally incapable.
He remains in the Midland County Jail on a $400,000 cash bond and faces up to 42 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
