Criminal Indictment Against Union Town Supervisor Dismissed
Some officials in the Town of Union and the Broome County District Attorney say they are not happy with a decision by a Broome County Judge to dismiss a criminal indictment against Union Town Supervisor Rose Sotak.
The Republican was charged with felony corrupt use of position or authority, three misdemeanor counts of official misconduct and one misdemeanor charge of obstructing governmental administration. She was accused of berating Town employees and using foul language while doing so.
Some Trustees at the July 12 Town meeting said they wanted justice for the employees, whom they say bravely came forward with their harassment accusations.
Sotak, on her part, is thanking supporters, which she ranked in the thousands.
Judge Kevin Dooley said there was not sufficient evidence to support the charges when he handed down his decision.
The court drama for Sotak may not be over with District Attorney Steven Cornwell saying he will appeal.
