Fake Cop faces real court

Aaron Wilson

The infamous fake cop, twenty-three year old Aaron Wilson, is going to trial on four charges. During the preliminary inquiry today, his attorney Arthur Saldivar made several attempts to challenge the evidence before the court and revealed that Wilson’s case file has been missing since September, 2011. But Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith committed Wilson to stand trial in the April session of the Supreme Court, which is scheduled to start on April nineteenth.  Wilson will be tried on charges of Forgery of an Official Document, Unlawful Possession of Police Department Accoutrements, Possession of Imitation Official Documents and Possession of False Official Documents. For six months, Wilson reportedly pretended to be a police officer and he was quite convincing since he had full uniforms and accessories. But on July twentieth, 2010 a report was made to Police Internal Affairs by Shannon Martinez, who claimed that Wilson sexually harassed her, stole her cell phone and threatened to kill her boyfriend. In was while investigating the complaint that police discovered they had a fake cop in their midst. Wilson faced a slew of charges after the purported scam was publicly unraveled. So far he has been freed of aggravated assault with a firearm and using threatening words, but was convicted of theft and aggravated assault of an indecent nature at the Magistrate’s Court. He is currently out on bail awaiting trial.
