Former Riverdale officer charged with sexual assault granted bond

- A judge granted bond Friday for a former Riverdale police officer now charged with sexual assault against a female inmate. 

James Robinson was originally charged with rape, in addition to sexual assault, but a judge dropped the rape charge earlier this week.

At a court hearing on Friday, Robinson was given a $50,000 bond. The judge imposed a curfew and required him to wear an ankle bracelet. 

Robinson also can't have contact with anyone involved in the case.

Riverdale police said Robinson had only been with the department for five months when the alleged incident occurred. His former place of employment, according to investigators, was the same tire shop where the alleged attack happened.
