Former Police Chief Learns Orange is the New Blue

Former police chief, Anthony Marraccini, of Harrison, NY, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for tax evasion.

Marraccini pleaded guilty to charges against him this past January. According to federal prosecutors, Marraccini earned more than $2.5 million from his home improvement business and rental income from investment property owned, causing a loss to the IRS in excess of $782,000 and nearly $200,000 in state income taxes.

Marraccini retired in 2016 from the Harrison Police Department after serving nearly 30 years due to being placed on paid leave for allegedly falsifying his timesheets.

In addition to prison time, the court sentenced him to one year supervised release, a fine of $25,000 and pay $126,347 in restitution.

Marraccini must report to prison on July 31st.
