Following their initial report on the Sussex County GOP sheriff’s primary race between incumbent Sheriff Mike Strada and challenger Andy Boden, NBC’s I-Team has a second report detailing abuse of power allegations in the Sheriff’s Office.
The report details a hazing incident involving a corrections officer which included sexually explicit and homophobic taunts. ‘I was humiliated in front of everyone’ said John White, who left the department of another law enforcement agency.
A former Sheriff’s Officer Michael Scuzezzi who recently resigned said ‘anyone who sticks up for themselves or another person, you will get targeted, you will be harassed, you will be bullied in some form or another’. It got to the point where ‘I could not take it anymore, I had to get out’.
