Former SLC Police Officer Found Not Guilty Of Domestic Violence Charges
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A former Salt Lake City police officer has been found not guilty on domestic violence charges.
Matthew Collins, 26, of Bluffdale, was acquitted by a West Jordan jury on March 15.
He was criminally charged in 2017 after his then-wife told investigators he choked her multiple times and handcuffed her. Collins told police at the time he handcuffed her once because he believed she was suicidal, and he didn’t want her to harm herself.
Collins ultimately resigned from the Salt Lake City Police Department.
