I don't think it's a stretch to say the Feds have something more on Piche's head, such as the charges I mentioned above, others that have been rumored around the streets for years or perhaps even something on others at The Red Front who have more hands on dealings with the day to day operation of the place. Either way, the offer comes with his resignation from the job he had for 22 years, three years shy of being eligible for a full pension, so there has to be something hanging over his head outside of hiring workers off the books.
as without the union's consent.
Piche and Rogers headed up SEARCO since it formed in 2005 and things were ticking along pretty well by that I mean the union members didn't have a lot of complaints until Gary Gordon, a former Troy cop and current investigator at the DA's office, decided to run against Mahar in 2011. Piche, Rogers and some of the other COs decided to back Gordon which, understandably, didn't make Mahar too happy.
It appears at least one chapter in the long simmering and at times boiling over dispute between different factions of corrections officers at the Rensselaer County jail is coming to an end. Attorney's office is set to offer Mark Piche, the former president of the Sheriff's Employees Association of Rensselaer County, a plea deal. According to the deal that has not yet been finalized as of this writing, he will admit to felony tax evasion stemming from hiring workers at the Red Front, his family's restaurant on Division Street in Troy, off the books, not do any jail time and if called testify against the union's former Vice President Kevin Rogers.
It's hard to say when the accusations against Piche and Rogers came about or who brought them out but it's safe to say it was right around the time Gordon was gearing up Stockists Mbt Shoes Glasgow his campaign and there is no question it came from Mahar supporters within the jail.

It's going to be interesting to see if the Feds do bring charges against Rogers, the former SEARCO vice president and treasurer as of the union's 2010 IRS filing. And it's going to be more interesting to see if Piche says Rogers spent money on such things as strip clubs, upscale restaurants and political campaigns without Piche's knowledge, which is the same Mbt Shoes New York City
to his office and then putting it back.
Michael LoPorto is again in front of the jury to face 22 counts of possession of a forged instrument for allegedly handling forged absentee ballots in the 2009 Working Families Party primary. His last trial when he was charged with 29 such crimes ended with the jury unable to reach a decision on his guilt or innocence.
Angrisano may have thrown some stones, but at least he made sure his house wasn't made of glass. Or at least Plexiglas because tax evasion really doesn't amount to much considering what was out there.
Considering the allegations that were out there beating inmates, misappropriating union funds and recruiting inmates into the Conservative Party to vote in the primary tax evasion for doing something I would say 90 percent of small businesses, particularly in the bar/restaurant industry, have done or are doing, isn't all that serious.
on the trial except to say I hope to make it over for some of the testimony. Especially if LoPorto testifies. Coleman, in the past, has not been afraid to put defendants on the stand and LoPorto has said all along he's ready and willing to testify so we'll see if there will be yet another "only in Troy moment" on the horizon.
Tax evasion isn't all that serious
Speaking of political campaigns, that's where this whole thing got started.
The petit larceny was for taking the sheet of paper. The criminal mischief was for damaging the Plexiglas he moved to get at the paper. The judge dismissed the charges for lack of evidence and the district attorney didn't argue that fact because unlike Piche and Rogers, there wasn't anything there.
Piche and Rogers may have been spearheading the Gordon support within the jail, but there were a number of other employees working against Mahar too. One is Joe Angrisano, a CO who was charged with petit larceny and criminal mischief after he allegedly took an announcement off a billboard at the jail back Skechers For Kids Girl
This time around, though, it's just LoPorto whereas last time he was sitting next to his co defendant Ed McDonough, the county Board of Elections commissioner.
I would be remiss without talking at least a little bit about voter fraud (I think I'm the only one who still calls it voter fraud instead of ballot fraud but I don't care. It's my column and I can call it what I want.)
In a way that has to hurt LoPorto because this time it's just him under the spotlight and in a way it has to help him because the brunt of testimony in the first trial was geared towards McDonough.
That said, throwing accusations around during a heated political campaign has been going on since Christ was a carpenter. To see something come out of the bomb throwing like an investigation at the local, state and federal levels is kind of rare. And when someone pleads guilty to a federal felony because of it, it's even a rarer occurrence.
This time too, LoPorto has Cheryl Coleman rather than Michael Feit representing him. Since, as I mentioned, most of the first trial was about McDonough Feit didn't have to work all that hard so it's nothing against him but having Coleman in his corner can't do anything but help LoPorto.
