A court-appointed expert will take a closer look at a computer hard drive owned by former Parsippany Police Capt. James Carifi. He agreed last Friday to allow his hard drive to be examined, according to the Daily Record.

Carifi became the subject of a Parsippany police internal affairs probe, in which the township claims that he "manipulated" data on municipal computers, stole 957,342 pages of police information—including confidential information about residents not suspected of committing crimes—and transferred police documents to his personal email.

These acts took place in late March, just before Carifi left the police department's employ.

Township attorney John Inglesino said the township’s goal is to get its property returned and their view is that Carifi “committed serious acts of wrongdoing and he did not retire from Parsippany in good standing,” according to the Daily Record.


Corruption in Parsippany? December 10, 2013 at 03:43 PM
Township attorney John Inglesino said the township’s goal is to get its property returned and their view is that Carifi “committed serious acts of wrongdoing and he did not retire from Parsippany in good standing,” or it could have said Township attorney John Inglesino says that Paul Carifi committed a serious act of wrongdoing by opposing the Mayor in the primary and this is a huge waste of tax payer money in legal fees, going to me of course to create to trumped up B-ll#h-t allegation of wrong doing by his brother James Carifi over a hard drive that the Police Dept already has stated it has backed up, thus nothing actually was lost or stolen. I will make additional money defending the town against James Carifi's future lawsuit as we have held up his pension as retribution for his brother challenging the Mayor in an election. It’s all in how you tell the story it seems.

Has James removed himself from the BOE...would be the right thing to do at this time.
