By News Staff



Former Pawtucket police officer Stephen Ricco is being held without bail.

That's what a judge ordered at a bail hearing in Kent County court Monday afternoon.

The case will now go before the Grand Jury.

The 40–year old is charged with raping and assaulting his girlfriend on Thanksgiving.

Back in April Ricco was sentenced to anger management counseling after pleading no contest to domestic violence charges in a separate case.
