Questioned, following the arraignment, Attorney Vila told the Guardian that the information regarding two misdemeanors, Petty Larceny, and third Degree Menacing, as well as Second Degree Harassment, a violation, was essentially hearsay.

bidding, have been retaliating against Officer Tancredi using a 25-year-old female acquaintance, with immigration issues, in an all-out retaliatory e- ort against him because of actions by his union membership in United States District Court brought on by the installation of audio and video recording devices in the locker room at Harrison Police Headquarters, as well as the the by taking and fraud of a $2,500 donation to the union by Chief Hall.

Officer Tancredi’s wife, as well as his mother, each of whom have independent relationships with her, and neither of whom were ever specifically prohibited from communicating with her.
