Former Irondequoit cop pleads guilty to cyberstalking

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - A former Irondequoit police officer pleaded guilty to cyberstalking and computer intrusion on Thursday.

Under the plea deal, 51-year-old William Rosica, faces a maximum of 5 years in prison.

Prosecutors said that in February 2016 and March 2017 Rosica subjected the victim to a relentless campaign directed toward threatening and psychologically torturing his victim and injuring, harassing, and intimidating her.

Rosica used direct, indirect, and digital surveillance in a focused campaign of online abuse, physical stalking, and harassment aimed at destroying the victim’s life.

Following his arrest, the defendant made materially false statements to FBI Agents. In addition, the investigation identified several other victims who were subjected to similar physical and digital harassment over several years before he started stalking the victim.

Sentencing is scheduled to take place on Jan. 9. At that time, the judge will decide if Rosica will be fined $250,000 per count and six years of post-release supervision.
