SV Chief Building Inspector Indicted

Spring Valley’s Chief Building Inspector, Walter Booker, and businessman Jacob Goldman have been indicted by a Rockland grand jury for allegedly stealing taxpayer money and filing false certificates of occupancy for Goldman’s Zeissner Lane house. As part of a joint task force with U.S. Attorney’s Office in White Plains, an investigation by the Rockland District Attorney’s Office and Spring Valley police led to the arrest of the two men in January. Booker and Goldman are being indicted by the grand jury on three counts of third-degree grand larceny for alleged theft of taxpayer money. Goldman is also indicted on three counts of first-degree offering a false instrument for filing. Booker faces three counts each of first-degree falsified business records and issuing false certificates, as well as three counts of official misconduct. The charges carry a maximum of seven years in prison. Both men have pleaded not guilty to the initial charges. There is no record of any previous criminal behavior by either man.
