SYRACUSE, NY — A former custodial supervisor at the Onondaga County Courthouse
plead guilty to felony first-degree falsifying business records and a misdemeanor count of petit larceny, according to the Post-Standard
Matthew Sindoni Jr. allowed three courthouse custodians to leave work early, used their swipe cards to clock them out of work later and used his own card to indicate he was supervising work that was not being done, the story stated.
Sindoni''s attorney questioned the strict ruling that his client ended up with a felony conviction because of "15 hours of comp time," the story noted.
State Supreme Court Justice John Brunetti is also asking that Sindoni serve jail time and pay $354 in restitution for his actions, the story added.
According to the story, the three co-defendants, James Racona, Jerome Bowens and Louis Hill, plead guilty to misdemeanor falsifying business records charges and have been sentenced to one-year conditional discharges.
