The trial of a former Milan police officer accused of embezzling more than $5,000 from an 84-year-old woman is scheduled for Oct. 23.
Robert A. Wolfkill, 46, of 2011 S. Main St., Milan, was released Monday afternoon from the Huron County Jail after posting 10 percent of his $10,000 bond, a jail spokeswoman said. Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway ordered the suspect to have no contact with the victim, whom authorities said Wolfkill reportedly met and befriended at a Milan restaurant.
Wolfkill is accused of betraying the victim's trust after she granted him the power of attorney. He reportedly bought breakfast for the victim and her late husband when Wolfkill was a Milan officer, Huron County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Dane Howard said.
