tedc: According to Connors and Pickup, the Rye Detective Division had no one in charge from April 19, 2012, when Verille rear ended a car on 684 in North Castle, until November 2012. It was only after an outside inquiry was made that Connors assigned another Lieutenant to take over for Verille in November. This would mean that Connors was in charge of the Detective Division at the time of the Rye Golf Club investigation that French, Pickup and Wilson have said took place prior to the Rye City Council investigation being initiated. So Connors really did get to investigate not only himself, but his bosses too. One can only assume that given this set of circumstances, this investigation was swift and cleared everyone involved. As far as Connors referral to the District Attorney? I would love to see that! I wonder if the City Council investigators have it yet.
