UPDATED FRIDAY FEBRUARY 3, 2017 BY DAVY V.
I was in U.S. District Court in Rochester, NY this morning, when an Irondequoit, NY cop appeared for a detention hearing.
Saying that the evidence against officer Rosica suggests he waged "a campaign of abuse and terror", U.S. District Magistrate Judge Jonathan Feldman looked at Irondequoit, NY Police officer William Rosica, and denied him bail.
That means Rosica, a 13-year veteran of the Irondequoit, NY Police Department, will be held in custody, until his trial.
In court, Federal prosecutor Melissa Marangola outlined the government's case against Rosica, which includes Rosica stalking his ex-girlfriend both in person, driving by her house, conducting surveillance on her as she got a haircut, and also stalking her using computers, which he used to send her harassing emails, and messages, many from anonymous email accounts he would set up.
According to Marangola, officer Rosica tried hacking into his ex-girlfriend's personal and work email accounts, as well as her phones a total of 282 times.
Marangola told Judge Feldman that officer Rosica even sent his ex-girlfriend messages telling her she should kill her self and went as far as sending her links on ways how to commit suicide.
Also in court, it was revealed that officer Rosica's own brother, a priest in Toronto, Canada, contacted prosecutors telling them his brother should not be released from custody.
Prosecutor Melissa Marangola also told Judge Feldman that several law enforcement officials have contacted her office since Rosica's arrest, saying he has stalked women before.
One of those law enforcement officials told prosecutors that Rosica stalked another girlfriend in 2009, in the exact same fashion.
The law enforcement officer who contacted prosecutors is related to that woman.
In court, prosecutor Melissa Marangola said a law enforcement official told Federal prosecutors that he warned the Irondequoit, NY Police Department years ago, that if they hired Rosica, "they would regret it."
