Officer Bridgette M. Wilson, 42, who has been suspended without pay since March 2011, had been accepted into the York County District Attorney's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program for her charges of intercepting communications, third-degree felonies.
Wilson allegedly made the illegal recordings in December 2010 and January 2011.
At her ARD hearing Friday, Wilson withdrew her petition and opted to go to trial, which now is scheduled for July 8 in York County court.
Her attorney, Korey Leslie, said Friday he was left "with the impression" she did not want to comply with the requirements of ARD. The program typically includes a supervision fee, community service, possibly some counseling, and the directive not to commit any other crimes.
Successful completion of ARD can result in the criminal charges being expunged from public records.
"The only thing she told me was she thinks she doesn't need to do ARD," Leslie said.
Wilson, of Mountville, also is charged with receiving stolen property in Lancaster County.
Manor Township Police seized a walkie-talkie and "other police related items" belonging to the Susquehanna Township Police Department inside Wilson's home in March 2011. Wilson had worked as an officer for Susquehanna Township Police, leaving the department in December 2007.
No date is set for her Lancaster trial.
