A county in Virginia is looking to dismiss 400 convictions that involved a former police officer

He resigned when the police department started investigating him and promptly got hired in Florida:

Fairfax police said they began investigating [the officer] after receiving a tip about him in July 2019. The police department took him off the streets. [The officer], now 25, resigned in May 2020 after the FBI had joined Fairfax County in a criminal investigation of him. But even after The Washington Post first reported the allegations against [the officer] in June 2020, he was hired by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in Florida in August 2020. The Fairfax human relations department reported to Brevard that the former officer had never been “subject to disciplinary action” and “there are no disciplinary records in his file.”
