Dear Mayor and ADA:
On May 23, 2016, I contacted you about misconduct of West Chester Police Department employees and illegal activities of Borough police officers. Shortly after contacting you, I received a phone call from Lt. William Morris informing me that he was in charge of an Internal Investigation.
After meeting with Lt. Morris, I was assured my complaints were being addressed; however, instead of getting better, the situation has grown much worse. Lt. Morris has received additional criminal complaints against his officers.
During the course of the investigation, it has come to light that at least three police officers, Patrolman Albert McCarthy Jr., Patrolman Gregory M. Cugino, and Corporal Joshua Lee, have been involved in the following illegal activities: retaliation, witness intimidation, obstruction of justice, lying under oath, falsifying police reports, conspiracy to commit a crime, and/or interfering with an internal affairs investigation. I wish to file additional criminal complaints against these officers.
Also, I am filing a complaint against Lt. William Morris for his gross mismanagement of the investigation and his potential collusion and conspiracy to commit crimes.
