A Chatham-Kent police officer is facing an additional charge of sexual assault, after being charged with one previous count of sexual assault and assault in December.
According to Chatham-Kent Police Service Staff Sgt. Mike Domony, Const. Andrew Jaconelli appeared in court Jan. 4 to answer to the three charges.
The charges are based on recent disclosures to Chatham-Kent Police and investigation by the Windsor Police Service major crimes unit.
Jaconelli is now facing one additional count of sexual assault in connection with an off-duty incident that occurred in August of 2018.
The officer appeared before the Ontario Court of Justice at the Chatham Courthouse and was released on a recognizance of bail with specific conditions that he has to adhere to.
The CKPS Professional Standards Branch is conducting further internal investigations under the Police Services Act regarding the possibility of additional Police Service Act charges and a policy/procedure review as required.
The involved officer was suspended from duty on Dec. 14. Jaconelli has also been charged with an additional count under the Police Services Act with discreditable conduct.
Any witness who has information regarding these allegations is encouraged to contact the CKPS Professional Standards Branch at 519-436-6617.
