New Charges Against Chief Sullivan

The Journal News reported Sunday that they have obtained documents confirming Clarkstown has a new round of charges against Police Chief Michael Sullivan. The Chief is accused of deleting the contents of his town iPhone last summer at the time he was suspended with pay. The majority of the new charges accuse the 33-year law enforcement veteran of wiping the phone despite knowing that an internal investigation and litigation involving two former police officers were pending, and that the device may have held information relevant to those cases. Sullivan is also accused of failing to prevent former Detective Sargeant Stephen Cole-Hatcher from deleting information from his department-issued iPhone and computer hard drive. Sullivan’s lawyer, former Clarkstown assistant town attorney, Richard Glickel called the new charges “intentionally false and unfounded.” He told the Journal News that personal use of department-issued cellphones is permitted and that phones are always returned to factory settings by the department when they are turned in so they can be re-issued to other officers. Glickel added that all Sullivan’s cellphone emails were backed up on the department’s network, and a record of all calls and phone numbers can be identified through the phone carrier.
