ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Albany Police Chief Brendan Cox calling a press conference today announcing that an internal investigation focusing on one of his officers is complete.
Chief Cox says he took the accusations by Anthony Aubin against one of his officers very seriously.
Chief Cox says Aubin made allegations that an Albany police officer had sexual relations with an underage individual.
Aubin was recently arrested by Colonie Police. He’s accused of using fraudulent checks at two Colonie car dealerships that his alleged boyfriend, Schenectady Sgt. Jonathan Moore, who’s been suspended, was allegedly present for.
Chief Cox says his officer did not have sexual relations with anyone underage.
“We looked at photographs and social media. We did what we do as investigators,” Chief Cox said.
Chief Cox will not release the Albany Officers name and says he’s thankful the officer was never publicly named.
“Any kind of false accusation could ruin a police officer’s career but then on top of that it could ruin a life.”
Chief Cox says there may be other allegations out there involving other local police agencies but would not elaborate any further.
“The allegations in the other jurisdictions have really nothing to do with what the allegations were here in the city of Albany,” Chief Cox said. “There are separate cases going on in those jurisdictions.”
