The Sheriff’s Office immediately suspended Josephine Cutolo without pay when we became aware of this incident back in August 2012. We subsequently asked the FBI to conduct the investigation. As soon as we were informed by the United States Attorney’s Office that criminal charges were pending against Cutolo, she was terminated. The Erie County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Federal Bureau of Investigation – Buffalo Office for investigating this incident and U.S Attorney William Hochul for securing a guilty plea today in Federal Court. All law enforcement officers, regardless of their title or position, must abide by their oath of office and protect all who are entrusted to their custody and care. The Sheriff’s Office has a zero tolerance policy against any type of inmate abuse and I believe the way we handle this incident is clear evidence of that.

"I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all the citizens of Erie County for your support! Together, we will continue to make a our community a safer and better place to live."
