Richmond Police officer found not guilty of sexual battery


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A Richmond Police officer has been found not guilty of sexual battery.

Michael Bryson, who has been on leave without pay, was in court Thursday.

On March 16, the Richmond Police Department received a complaint about alleged misconduct involving an officer. Internal Affairs was asked to investigate. 

The department then submitted the investigation to the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office for review. As a result of their review, the investigation was presented to a grand jury who indicted Bryson on one count of misdemeanor sexual battery.

8News has reached out to RPD to find out if Bryson, who had been with the department since July of 2008, will be reinstated.
