Mass. Campus Police Officer Charged with Exposing Himself to Student

The Framingham State University police and state police are investigating the case.

A Framingham State University campus police officer was arrested and fired after being accused of exposing himself to a student Sept. 3.

Wilter Dormevil, 28, pleaded not guilty to charges of open and gross lewdness, wanton and lascivious conduct and intimidating a witness at his arraignment Sept. 6, reports Wicked Local. The university announced that Dormevil was fired the same day.

A female student told investigators she was working at the campus dispatch station when she saw Dormevil “slowly rubbing” himself while holding a clipboard at his groin. The student left the station and told a male student, who also worked at the police station, what she saw. According to the police report, the male student says he found what he thinks was semen on the back of the female student’s chair when he entered the office.

After the alleged incident, police say Dormevil approached the female student and apologized.

FSU police seized Dormevil’s gun, arrested him and requested assistance from the state police to collect evidence.

During a press conference, FSU Police Chief Brad Medeiros emphasized that his officers are highly trained and vetted before joining the department and that Dormevil had passed a 25-step background check before being hired in May.

“When I got the phone call for this situation on Saturday, I couldn’t believe it,” Medeiros says. “I was devastated, really disappointed. The officer involved came from a very strong background.”

Dormevil posted $500 cash bail after he was ordered to stay away from the FSU campus and to have no contact with the alleged victim.
