Judge rejects plea deal for former cop

A judge has rejected a plea deal for the former Manchester police officer accused of hitting two Bedford teens with his unmarked cruiser. Investigators said Noah Hickman and Dean Drukker were walking on Harod Lane in Bedford on March 22 when they were struck from behind and left in the snow. Bedford police said their investigation determined that the vehicle that hit the teens was an unmarked Manchester police cruiser driven by 17-year veteran Detective Sgt. Stephen Coco. Coco was fired and charged with felony hit-and-run. In September, the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor in exchange for a plea, which today was rejected by a judge. A trial date was set for March 3, 2014.
