Ex-Gardner officer arraigned on child rap charges
WORCESTER, Mass.—A former Gardner police officer has pleaded not guilty to child rape charges at his Superior Court arraignment.
Larry Landry was indicted Feb. 24 by a Worcester County grand jury on six counts of rape of a child with force and three counts of indecent assault and battery on a child.
The 36-year-old Landry, who resigned in October, is accused of sexually assaulting a now 16-year-old boy several times from January 1999 to December 2007 in Winchendon and Gardner.
The Telegram & Gazette (http://bit.ly/GZc1h0) reports that Landry was allowed to remain free on $10,000 bail Wednesday and was allowed contact with children under 17 as long as another adult is present.
Landry's lawyer asked that he be allowed to remain free on personal recognizance because he is innocent.
