Waterford Twp. officer fired after domestic violence, other charges
A Waterford Township police officer who was charged this week with domestic violence and criminal sexual conduct charges has been fired, officials said.
Officer Brendon Moquin had initially been placed on administrative leave after the department learned late Monday about an alleged incident, which officials did not detail. But as of Thursday, once a probe had been completed, his employment was terminated, police said in a statement.
Moquin, on the force 3 1/2 years, was arraigned Wednesday before 51st District Court Judge Richard Kuhn in Waterford Township.
The officer was charged with one count of domestic violence, a 93-day misdemeanor, and third-degree criminal sexual conduct, a 15-year felony.
He was released on a $25,000 personal bond. A probable-cause hearing is scheduled for April 12.
