Fraternization on the job


Fraternization on the job
OATH Index No. 391/14

Department of Correction (DOC) brought charges against a correction officer relating to her relationship with an inmate, the father of her children.

OATH Administrative Law Judge Alessandra F. Zorgniotti found that the officer failed to notify DOC about her pre-employment relationship with the inmate, brought her cell phone on post to speak with him, and engaged in unauthorized financial dealings and discussed official business with him.

AJJ recommended that the correction officer be termination from employment.
