NEW BEDFORD, M.A. – A retired New Bedford police officer has been sentenced to ten-years and a day in jail for inappropriately touching a 10-year-old girl.

Jean Gomes pleaded not guilty in Superior Court on indecent assault charges but was eventually found guilty of one count of indecent assault and battery on a child under the age of 14-years-old.

Gomes retired from the New Bedford Police Department in January 15 after being indicted for the crime.
