Second District Judge Rodney Page has granted a former Bountiful police officer's motion to be tried separately on charges he sexually abused two women while on duty.

Roger Closen, 50, is scheduled to be tried Aug. 3 in the first case. A trial date was pending on charges he assaulted another woman the same night, prosecutors said Thursday.Assistant Davis County Attorney Carvel Harward said he was disappointed with the ruling, particularly with the order prohibiting evidence from both assaults being used in each trial.
