BLOOMFIELD — A former Bloomfield police officer has been charged with criminal sexual contact of a minor. Joseph Goodman, 54, is accused of molesting a child under the age of 13 at his home in Bloomfield, San Juan County sheriff's Detective Tyler Truby said. The allegations cover the course of a year beginning in 2004. Truby said the child told a family member, who called the sheriff's office. Goodman resigned from the Bloomfield force in February 2004, Chief Drew Standley said. Goodman had an initial appearance before Magistrate Wilma Charley. Officials said he bonded out of jail Monday.
