58 year old canine officer Jean Gomes of the New Bedford, Massachusetts Police Department has been on the force 26 years. He has been charged in Superior Court with three counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14. District Attorney spokesman Greg Miliote said that the charge of indecent assault and battery on a person under 14 by a mandated reporter carries a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence and a maximum sentence of life in prison. The Prosecutor is Maryclare Flynn.

Southcoasttoday reports:

"According to the criminal complaint, Gomes is accused of indecently assaulting and beating the victim on different dates and times from on or about Jan. 1, 2011, to on or about July 31, 2014, in New Bedford.
...Judge Renee P. Dupuis imposed the mutually agreed upon bail of $2,500 cash. She also instructed the 58-year-old canine officer to have no contact with the victim.
According to court documents, the victim is a 10-year-old New Bedford resident who is known to Gomes. The district attorney's office has identified her as a female.
[Police Chief] Provencher said, as of Friday, Gomes is suspended without pay from the department. The notice, signed by Mayor Jon Mitchell, was being served to Gomes on Friday.

Police Chief David A. Provencher was quoted in the newspaper as saying:
"As you can imagine I am deeply troubled by the allegations against Officer Gomes. Having said that, everyone is entitled to the due process of the judicial system and I will await the outcome of this process before rendering judgment. However pending that outcome I have no reservation in saying that Officer Gomes cannot and will not perform any duties as a police for the City of New Bedford until such time as these charges are resolved. These accusations involve one officer and one officer alone, and in no way reflect on the fine work and excellent community service performed daily by the men and women of the New Bedford Police Department."

Why would the prosecutor agree to such a low bond of $2500 for an officer who is accused of such heinous crimes? Why would Judge Renee P. Dupuis impose such a low bail for defendants accused of such crimes against children?

Judge Renne P. Dupuis has a very shady past herself and was even refused for Judge nomination by Mitt Romney when he was governor. Judgepedia reports "Renne P. Dupuis is a superior court judge in Massachusetts. She was nominated to this position by Governor Deval Patrick and took office in early 2011. Her term will expire when she reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70."

In December 2010, Governor Deval L. Patrick nominated Dupuis, whom he called a 'distinguished litigator' and a 'well-respected resident of New Bedford.' His press release stated "Renee P. Dupuis is Chief of the Criminal Bureau of the Attorney General's Office. Renee served for 21 years in the Bristol County District Attorney's office where she was First Assistant, Chief Trial Counsel and Chief of the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit. She is a graduate of Bryant College (1982) and Boston University School of Law (1985) and is a resident of New Bedford. She is slated to fill the vacancy on the Superior Court created by the retirement of The Honorable David A. McLaughlin."

Soon after Dupuis was nominated for judge, there was a 'heated judicial hearing' in which a defense lawyer of a woman who had been falsely convicted of first-degree murder while Dupuis was the prosecutor was strongly opposing Dupuis nomination for judgeship. The woman's murder conviction was indeed overturned, but her lawyer still took the time to oppose Dupuis because he didnt think she should be a judge. He said that Dupuis withheld evidence that would have cleared the woman of murder charges in the first place. The article then adds "In 2005, Romney withdrew Dupuis� judicial nomination after details surfaced about her divorce from a state trooper, who accused her of abusing alcohol and trying to shoot him."! Excerpt:

Judicial nominee appears before council at heated hearing
Five years after former Gov. Mitt Romney withdrew her nomination for a judgeship in the Juvenile Court, veteran prosecutor Renee P. Dupuis appeared today before the Governor�s Council for a second bite of the apple. This time Dupuis was eyeing a seat on the Superior Court.
During the hearing, which became contentious at times, Cambridge defense lawyer Kevin J. Mahoney accused Dupuis of withholding exculpatory evidence during the murder trial of Christina Martin in 1992. Martin was convicted of first-degree murder for poisoning her boyfriend with Jell-O laced with a massive amount of LSD. Mahoney represented Martin on appeal and was able to overturn the conviction in 1996 on the grounds that the defendant�s original attorney was ineffective and that the District Attorney�s Office had withheld toxicology evidence from the state crime lab that showed the victim did not have LSD in his system. Before the retrial, Martin accepted a plea deal for manslaughter � against Mahoney�s advice. Mahoney told governor�s councilors that Dupuis knew about the toxicology evidence but failed to turn it over to Martin�s original attorney. He said another prosecutor tipped him off about the evidence. "[Dupuis] knew that this evidence she put in a first-degree murder case � was completely invalid," he said.

...Dupuis admitted that if she could revisit the case she �would have called the crime lab or driven out there and asked what they had in their file."
Mahoney was the only significant public opponent of Dupuis� nomination who attended the hearing.
In 2005, Romney withdrew Dupuis� judicial nomination after details surfaced about her divorce from a state trooper, who accused her of abusing alcohol and trying to shoot him.
