    A San Diego police officer accused of inappropriately touching and sexually assaulting women in their 20s and 30s during pat-down searches was charged Tuesday with five criminal counts, including felony false imprisonment and misdemeanor sexual battery. 

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – A former San Diego police officer accused of groping and illegally detaining women while on duty appeared in court Monday for a pretrial hearing.

Christopher Hays is charged with two felony counts of false imprisonment and three misdemeanor counts of sexual battery. He faces 3 years and eight months in prison if convicted on all counts.

On Monday, a judge set Hays' preliminary hearing for April 22. He remains free on $130,000 bail.

No further charges were added during Monday's hearing, though they are awaiting DNA test results, Hays' attorney told CBS News 8.

The charges stem from allegations made by four women the former officer allegedly victimized between October and December of last year. Hays resigned from the SDPD after the charges were filed.
