NY Deputy Sheriff Pleads Guilty to Grand Larceny

Associated Press

January 25, 2011

CARMEL, N.Y. — A former New York deputy sheriff who claimed she fell down the stairs at work has admitted improperly receiving workmen’s compensation.

The Putnam County district attorney says Barbara Dunn pleaded guilty Monday to grand larceny.

Prosecutors alleged that Dunn was thrown off a horse in Dutchess County in 2008. They say she then claimed her injuries were caused when she fell down the stairs at the Putnam County sheriff’s office in Carmel.

A call to defense lawyer William Aronwald was not immediately returned.

The district attorney says Dunn will likely be sentenced to probation so she can work and pay back $56,000 in benefits.

Dunn was fired last year after being convicted of perjury in an unrelated case. —Copyright 2011 Associated Press

    If you are reading this and you are a dishonest, or crooked cop, do us all a favor and quit your job. I'm sick of you making the rest of us look bad.

    Put her in Jail where she belongs, then she can make 56,000 dollars worth or NYS license plates. I'm sure thats good for a 3 - 7 year bid..
