NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Davidson County jury found a former Metro police officer not guilty of official misconduct following a three-day trial Wednesday.

Jeffrey Poole was arrested in 2010 after a woman accused him of fondling her and making verbal propositions.

More women, who accused Poole of improper sexual contact and rape, were later interviewed and identified as victims.

Poole was decommissioned from the Metro Police Department in May of 2010 and arrested in early August of that same year.  The investigation began in April.

He was acquitted Wednesday in connection with the arrest of an 18-year-old woman in 2009.

A judge also withdrew a sexual battery charge against Poole citing a lack of evidence.

Poole faces another count of sexual battery, four counts of rape, three additional counts of official misconduct, one count of patronizing prostitution and one count of attempting to patronize prostitution in connection to the other victims.

He has pleaded not guilty to all counts and will face trial on those charges at a later date.
