The investigation began as an Internal Affairs matter dealing with some alleged misconduct with the jail's computer system according to the Sheriff. It quickly became a criminal investigation with Sheriff's Office investigators taking the lead and the Monroe County District Attorney's Office was also investigated.
D.A. Sandra Doorley was asked if discussions about bringing in an outside agency to investigate was discussed so as to avoid the appearance of impropriety.
"By bringing in our investigators, that being the D.A.'s Office I believe that would erase any appearance of impropriety," D.A. Doorley said. "As soon as the Sheriff and the members of the Sheriff's Office knew about this they came right over to my office, we sat down (with) my investigators who work at the DA's Office and jointly investigated this before placing it in front of a Grand Jury."
The Sheriff said none of the victims came forward and that his investigators needed to track down many of them and urge some of them to talk. He credited his investigators but also other members of the jail staff who helped bring this information to light.
"We derive our authority through the confidence and trust that this community has and any time any police officer in the county does something that violates that trust it's a black mark on all of us," Sheriff O'Flynn said.
When asked about the "black marks" that currently dot some of the Sheriff's jail operations in recent years, including the escape of two inmates last year from the downtown jail, the Sheriff responded; "We aggressively pursue and ensure that our people comply with the orders, the rules, the regulations and the laws and we are very aggressive in follow-up and in taking action."
Wilson maintains a Greece address on many public documents but multiple sources confirm he is now living in a Spencerport apartment. His lawyer stated in court that he is currently separated from his family.
Wilson is suspended from work and was asked to surrender his service revolver and pistol permit. Bail was set at $5,000 cash, $10,000 bond and he posted that bail shortly after his arraignment.
