Barrington Police Chief John LaCross said Sgt. Joe Andreozzi, who was found guilty of cyberstalking and obstruction of the judicial system on Friday, remains suspended without pay. The department suspended Sgt. Andreozzi after he was arrested by state police last year.
Chief LaCross said Sgt. Andreozzi’s employment status will remain suspended until after the court has an opportunity to rule on his motion for a new trial, which will be heard on Aug. 2.
Chief LaCross said he has been discussing the veteran officer’s employment status with the town manager and the town’s labor attorney.
“We’ll be taking the appropriate action,” Chief LaCross added. “It’s premature to comment on it, because there is a motion still pending in the courts.”
