FORT MYERS, Fla. — Former Fort Myers Police Captain Jay Rodriguez had a case management hearing today. He was not required to attend.

The judge requested him to be present for the next hearing, which is January 2nd Rodriguez is charged with misconduct, perjury, and prostitution.

This all stems from a 2013 undercover sting operation. Investigators claim video shows him in a sex act with a prostitute.

Rodriguez retired from the force after the charges were filed.

If he's convicted, Rodriguez will lose the city's contribution to his pension.

If he's cleared, he will be able to keep it.
