Possible ‘improprieties’ at fire association

ROCKVILLE, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut prosecutor says his office is investigating a complaint of possible “financial improprieties” involving the Coventry Volunteer Fire Association.

The Journal Inquirer reports that Tolland County Chief State’s Attorney Matthew C. Gedansky made the statement Friday as former Fire Chief Joseph Carilli appeared in court on sex assault charges. Gedansky declined to provide details.

Carilli rejected a plea agreement that would have called for a 12-year prison sentence, followed by 10 years of special parole.

He is charged with sexual assault, risk of injury, tampering with a witness and other offenses related to allegations he had a sexual relationship with a junior department member that began when she was 15.

Carilli has said nothing happened while the girl was underage, and that he was never in a position of authority over her.
