Peekskill Police Officer, Palisades Resident, Charged with Sexual Abuse, Freed on Bond

A Peekskill police officer, a resident of the Orangetown hamlet of Palisades, was freed on $100,000 bond yesterday, after a brief court appearance in Peekskill City Court. 33 year-old Michael Agovino faces charges of first-degree sexual abuse and stalking, and second-degree burglary, for allegedly sexually abusing a Peekskill woman. He’s accused of going to the woman’s home while on duty and in uniform several times and forcing her to undress. He’s been put on administrative leave. Peekskill’s mayor called the incident an embarrassment for the police department and the entire city. Agovino is due back in court on March 12. The case could be brought before a grand jury for potential indictment.
