Ruling delayed on charges against former officer

RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) - A circuit court judge in Rawlins has taken under advisement a case against former Rawlins police captain and Carbon County commissioner Adam "Lee" Meacham. The 45-year-old Meachem is charged with sexual assault,
soliciting a child to participate in illicit acts, furnishing alcohol to minors and other crimes.
Carbon County Circuit Court Judge Jane Eakin at a preliminary hearing on Friday did not make a ruling to send the felony counts faced by Meacham to Carbon County District Court. Meacham has yet to enter pleas, and it's unclear when Eakin will make a ruling. Authorities say Meacham sexually abused a teen between the ages of 15 and 17 while the girl was taking part in a police department ride-along program. He faces 15 criminal charges in the case. A former Rawlins resident sued Meacham and the city in 2007, contending Meacham sexually assaulted her. The lawsuit was settled
for $250,000.
