A 23 year veteran of the Albany County Sheriff's Department has been arrested and charged with Coercion and Harassment.
A former administrator says Carlo Sorriento tried to make him surreptitiously change a union contract. Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple says he didn’t want to believe it was true, but tells News Radio 810 and 103.1 that emails and recorded phone calls confirmed the complaint.
Apple says Sorriento thought the former administrator still had some pull in the department and would be able to get him preferential treatment while he was working. As for the attempt get a union contract changed, Sheriff Apple says that’s impossible. To begin with, the administrator is not the only one who has a signed copy of the contract.
The nature of the threat against the administrator has been described as being personal, not work related.
