Bond Denied For Officer Accused Of Using Position For Favors
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A judge denied bond for a Pittsburgh police officer who is accused of using his position to solicit sexual favors Tuesday morning.
Adam Skweres has been in the Allegheny County Jail since his arrest since last week.
Judge Jeffrey Manning said Skweres will not be released into house arrest until he receives a report on the officer from a behavioral clinic.
Skweres’ lawyers had asked for him to be released from jail and to be placed on electronic monitoring from home.
He is facing charges related to bribing women for sexual favors. However, there are pending investigations involving drug allegations.
His attorney hoped to get his client out of jail quickly, but that’s not the case now.
“For the record, he had been reviewed by a medical doctor. I met with him all weekend. I do not believe he is a danger to himself or others. There [are] two search warrants that Judge Manning had referred to. That is true. There are reports that there’s some type of narcotic whether it’s crack cocaine or heroin. But, nonetheless it was out suggestion to this honorable court that he be released subject to an independent examination. Judge Manning made it very clear he is not going to be released until [a doctor] can evaluate Mr. Skweres,” attorney Phil DiLucente said.
