A trial scheduled to begin last week for a former Trenton police officer facing multiple sex charges involving children has been continued to later this year.

Greene was a police officer in Trenton from 1978 to 2008, retiring as a sergeant, according to city officials. He then worked as a part-time corrections officer at the Butler County Sheriff’s Office from October 2008 to August 2009 before being laid off.

The crimes were alleged to have happened between Aug. 10, 2004, and Aug. 28, 2019, according to the indictment. Prosecutors say there are multiple accusers known to Greene.

In May, Butler County Common Pleas Court Judge Greg Howard set his trial for Oct. 25, but the trial date has been moved to Dec. 13.

Greene is free on $50,000 cash or surety bond. He is fitted with a GPS monitor and the judge told him not to have any contact with his accusers or anyone younger than18.
