Prostitution Charges Dropped Against Mass. Officer

ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) – A Connecticut judge has dismissed all charges against a Springfield detective who was arrested in a Valentine’s Day prostitution sting.

The Journal Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/1B1snO1 ) that Enfield Superior Court Judge Kathleen McNamara dismissed the charges against Detective John Wadlegger of Agawam, Massachusetts.

In March, McNamara granted the 42-year-old detective accelerated rehabilitation, a special program for first-time offenders that can result in charges being erased after a probationary period.

Wadlegger was among 11 men arrested Feb. 14 by Windsor Locks police.

All were charged with patronizing a prostitute.

Windsor Locks police said they placed ads on an Internet site popular among users seeking to trade sex for money.
