Only in public sector civil service can someone like this last 19 years on the job, folks!

22 years to life for jail guard in shooting
Long Island Item

Quote:
In sentencing Kim Wolfe, Judge David J. Ayres said he'd wanted to have imprisoned her for life, but didn't want to risk a jury finding Wolfe not guilty by reason of insanity.

"When this cold-blooded murderer offered to plead guilty," the judge said, the possibility that she could be hospitalized instead of imprisoned was "was not a chance I was willing to take."
Back when it happened, here's what her union boss said about her:

Quote:
"She was a good corrections officer," said Jerry Laricchiuta, president of Nassau Local 830, a civil-service employees union.

LOL! I guess she had a good rapport with her charges.

So she did 19 years as a drudge on one side of the bars and now she has been sentenced to 22 years to life as a prisoner on the other side of the bars.

But there's a bright spot in all this ... she will get her NYS pension! Being a cold-blooded murderer sentenced to prison will not change that!

If I understand the Pension system correctly, she WON'T receive a pension, as she was fired for cause due to her felony conviction prior to completing her required amount of service.

You only need to work 5 years to be vested. She won't receive the full pension, but close to it. Felony conviction means nothing. Look at Frank Tassone, the superintendent of the Roslyn School District. He stole over $1M from the school district. He collects a $170,000 per year pension and even collected it while he was sitting in jail being supported by the State of NY's taxpayers.

Yes she will. But whatever. If we're giving Frank Tassone $170,000 a year, why not her too?

I think COs have a tough job and deserve their pensions. Where else can you go unarmed into crowded jail cells, have excrement thrown in your face everyday, HIV infected criminals tossing blood on you, big sex offenders looking at you amorously and then have to come home to your significant other. It must be tough for them to perform sexually after dealing with criminals all day. It must also be tough for the Significant Other to know the person they were hugging was covered in urine and feces that day.

No wonder COs have a lot of mental issues..sometimes drinking too much...sometimes just burying their emotions with kitchen work around the house.

Thank God there's someone for everyone! If everyone rated being part of a highly educated, high socioeconomic class couple, who would date or marry a GED having, blue collar county prison guard?

Yes she's technically "vested" but...... If you get fired before 20 years for a P.O. which now changed to 22 on the new tier and 25 for a C.O. you lose your pension. There is always an exception to every rule( The recently fired officer in nassau had a deal in place before he was "fired") This doesn't usually happen and I was surprised he got it.

Your're getting confuse with someone that is already retired and then they get arrested yes they keep the pension.

Vested doesn't guarantee pension, big misconception

Lol, it seems everyone knows more than me on pension issues in NY state even though I use to be part of a group that gave seminars on the subject

I thought you were an officer out in the field, not a seminar-giving "suit" type of guy.

If criminals don't get their NYS pensions, then why did the NYS Assembly introduce this bill this year?

Bills

That bill was introduced to go after the "other civil servants" not the P.O.'s or C.O.'s.

For the record I agree with it, they all should be judged on a higher standard and lose it all if they Fu*k up! Whats fair is fair.
