NEW YORK, NY (10/25/2017) (readMedia)-- Today, Suffolk County District Attorney Spota was indicted for his alleged role in attempting to cover up an assault by a former Suffolk County police chief. Susan Lerner, Executive Director of Common Cause/NY, responds:
"Suffolk County DA Spota must resign immediately. These charges completely undermine the integrity of his office which must be a pillar of trust for the public it serves. Suffolk County residents deserve a DA who puts constituents, not cronies, first."
