FORT EDWARD, New York — A judge says prosecutors can use evidence recovered during searches of the home of a former New York military recruiter charged in two sexual assault cases.
The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports (http://bit.ly/14lQqy5 ) that a Washington County Court judge ruled that police searches of Robert Haas' home were lawful and that evidence recovered can be used at his trial.
The judge also ruled last week that Haas will have two trials in the county, one for each alleged sexual assault victim.
Prosecutors say the 36-year-old former Army National Guard recruiter met the two women while working in Watervliet. He was removed from that job last year, months before his arrest in April.
The charges against Haas include predatory sexual assault, rape and sexual abuse.
