An Erie Police Officer is reinstated after he is acquitted on Assault Charges.

36 year old Justin Griffith, a Patrolman with the Erie Police Department, returned to work today.  He is currently handling administrative duties, according to Erie Police Chief, Don Dacus.  

Griffith was found Not Guilty last week of a Misdemeanor Simple Assault Charge.  The department will now review police reports of the incident in question, compared to trial transcripts.

Pending any discrepancies, Griffith will return to patrol duties.
