A suspended state trooper is facing new charges. Authorities say 39-year-old Jason Sears is being charged with two additional counts of forcible touching. The alleged incident happened in 2017.
In November, Sears pleaded not guilty on charges of groping a receptionist at a garage in Rochester that works on state police vehicles. As part of an investigation, Sears was suspended without pay.
Sears is due back in Rochester City Court on January 22nd on the new charges.
