Bombay Clerk Sentenced For Pocketing Justice Court Fees

A North Country court clerk was sentenced for stealing more than $5,680 from Bombay Justice Court while the other court clerk—his mother—was on sick leave, according to State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.

<p>A North Country court clerk was sentenced yesterday for stealing more than $5,680 from Bombay Justice Court while the other court clerk &ndash; his mother &ndash; was on sick leave, according to State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.</p>

<p>Eric Fleury, 44, was sentenced in Dickinson Town Court to three years&rsquo; probation and ordered to pay full restitution after his February 1 guilty plea to official misconduct. The thefts were uncovered by DiNapoli&rsquo;s audit and investigation of the court&rsquo;s financial operations.</p>

<p>&quot;Mr. Fleury took advantage of another clerk&rsquo;s absence to steal from the public,&quot; DiNapoli said. &quot;I thank Franklin County District Attorney Craig P. Carriero for his persistent efforts to safeguard public funds.&quot;</p>

<p>Fleury, who was supposed to collect fine money for deposit into the court bank account, instead logged the cash receipts but pocketed the cash for nearly a year, investigators found.</p>

<p>Since taking office in 2007, DiNapoli has committed to fighting public corruption and encourages the public to help fight fraud and abuse. New Yorkers can report allegations of fraud involving taxpayer money by calling the toll-free Fraud Hotline at 1-888-672-4555, by filing a complaint online at&nbsp;<a href="mailto:investigations@osc.state.ny.us">investigations@osc.state.ny.us</a>, or by mailing a complaint to: Office of the State Comptroller, Division of Investigations, 14th Floor, 110 State St., Albany, NY 12236.
