COLWYN, Pa. --Former Officer Trevor Parham said that he intends to return to police work after a judge found him not guilty Wednesday on criminal charges relating to his use of a Taser on a juvenile who was shackled and handcuffed in a holding cell this year.

"I'm not a bad officer; I've never been accused of being a bad officer," Parham said. "It was just some bad political circumstances."
