Drugs Found in Prison Cell of Ex Police Chief
Brooklyn federal prosecutors have accused Spota and his chief of investigations, Christopher McPartland, of conspiring to help former Suffolk Police Chief James Burke in a notorious 2012 police beat-down. But more recently, he found himself under scrutiny by federal agents who were investigating a freakish attack on a criminal suspect carried out by his friend and the county's police chief at the time, James Burke. He's serving prison time for beating a man arrested for stealing items from his SUV. The prosecutors are slated to be arraigned in Central Islip federal court later this afternoon.
A district attorney on eastern Long Island and a top aide were charged Wednesday with intimidating witnesses in a federal civil rights investigation into the beating of a handcuffed prisoner by a police chief.
They're facing charges of tampering with witnesses, witness tampering, obstruction of justice and deprivation of civil rights. He was released on $500,000 bond.
Spota, 76, is not seeking re-election after 16 years in office. Sini is running for district attorney in November. A lawyer for Spota said his client denies the charges, the New York Times and the Associated Press report.
The federal indictment stems from an incident in December 2012, when, authorities say, then-Suffolk County Police Chief James Burke beat a jailed inmate who had been arrested for breaking into his auto. The suspect, who was later convicted by a special prosecutor, was accused of stealing a duffel bag in Burke's vehicle that contained cigars, sex toys and pornographic DVDs.
The three men are accused of "using intimidation, threats and corrupt persuasion to pressure one or more witnesses, including co-conspirators, not to cooperate with the federal investigation, to provide false information, including false testimony under oath, and to withhold relevant information from" federal prosecutors, the indictment states.
