Forgotten Era: DA contenders Spota and Perini: Ties to ’80s probes of Suffolk law enforcement

"In the late 1980s, state and local investigators probed widespread misconduct in Suffolk County, much of it criminal, in the district attorney’s office and county police department. The scrutiny culminated in a controversial 1989 report by the now-defunct State Commission of Investigation. The report presented a disturbing portrait of a broken county law enforcement system. Perini, and to a lesser extent Spota, are both linked to allegations of misconduct in the report, although neither man was ultimately charged with wrongdoing."
