A former Naples Police officer will go before a judge Monday morning on charges of molesting a girl between the ages of 12 and 16.
Ricardo Vazquez, 37, of Golden Gate, is charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation. He was arrested in March.
The trial is expected to last three days, a release said.
Collier County Sheriff’s arrest reports said Vazquez inappropriately touched a girl between the ages of 12 and 16 multiple times over several years. The girl told a relative who contacted deputies.
