[VA] Homicide Det. Sgt Pace, Union President, charged a 2nd time for dv assault

Danville Va. Lodge #36 Inc.

...Authorities have not said whether the woman Pace is accused of assaulting is his girlfriend or wife... Taylor said only that the deputy who arrived at the house determined there was enough evidence to arrest Pace... Pace also was charged with assault in December 2003 after a dispute with his girlfriend and her daughter, but those charges were dropped...

[Pace is "a member of the Danville Police Department Investigations Division and PRESIDENT of the Fraternal Order of Police.' These pics of him recieving the "presitigious" homicide detective of the year award and officer of the year award are meant to show that there's a good chance that these current charges will be dropped like the last one was. Makes me wonder how many chargeable incidents there may have been that never made it into visibility.]

A Danville police sergeant is on administrative leave after he was arrested last week and charged with assault by the Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office. Sgt. Jerry Pace Jr., a member of the Danville Police Department Investigations Division and president of the Fraternal Order of Police, was arrested on Sept. 30 and charged with assault after a deputy responded to a domestic violence call in the county, Sheriff Mike Taylor said Monday. The sheriff’s office isn’t releasing many details, including whether the woman Pace is accused of assaulting is his girlfriend or wife, or any evidence from the case. Taylor said only that the deputy who arrived at the house determined there was enough evidence to arrest Pace. Pace was released on bond and is on administrative leave from the police department. Lt. John Henderson, spokesman for the police department, said Pace’s leave is an administration issue and refused to comment on how long the sergeant will be on leave. Pace also was charged with assault in December 2003 after a dispute with his girlfriend and her daughter, but those charges were dropped in May 2004.
