A former corrections officer and current candidate for the Councilor-at-Large seat in Bridgewater’s April 28 election will be back in court yet again on charges of impersonating a police officer.

Bridgewater police say Joshua Randall flashed a badge and claimed he was an officer more than once, beginning in 2008.

Since then, the case has been continued several times, but Randall is now scheduled for a June 11 pre-trial conference in Brockton District Court.

Randall says the incidents never happened, and that he plans to file a slander suit once he clears his name.

Randall, who carried a Department of Correction badge while on the job at M.C.I. Norfolk, says he resigned because he was under increased scrutiny.

He also says the case may help his city council campaign, where he’s facing two opponents.
