A former Warren police officer who was fired after being accused of raping multiple victims now has even more charges against him.

According to court records, Michael Edwards Jr. has now been indicted on new charges including one additional count of Gross Sexual Imposition, two counts of Menacing by Stalking and two counts of Attempted Gross Sexual Imposition, all with firearm specifications.

This is in addition to four other counts of Gross Sexual Imposition, three counts of Rape and three counts of Sexual Battery all with firearm specifications, as well as two counts of Extortion, two counts of Theft in Office and two counts of Dereliction of Duty.

Court records show Edwards is due back in court March 27 to be arraigned on these new charges. He will then return to court April 1 for a pretrial hearing.

These new charges come not long after Trumbull County Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman brought allegations to light including new victims bringing the total to five.

Additional allegations brought to light include jail phone conversations between Edwards and his wife, who is still employed by Warren PD where the two allegedly said they hoped the victim died of an overdose or was hit by a bus or 18-wheeler.

Wildman further alleged that Edwards's wife reached out to the Trumbull County Sheriff's Office regarding her husband's case, but the exact nature of these inquiries are unknown at this time.

Edwards's wife was placed on paid leave shortly after these allegations were brought to light.
