The attorney for the former Irondequoit police officer who pled guilty to cyberstalking is disputing claims that his client made more stalking phone calls while behind bars, court documents outline.
Under a plea deal, William Rosica faces up to five years in prison. He was set to be officially sentenced next week.
But, in paperwork filed last Thursday, Rosica’s attorney is pushing back against claims made in a presentencing document. That document was filed last month but is still sealed and not available to the public.
But, according to his attorney, the document alleges Rosica continued his stalking behavior while in federal custody.
Attorney Mark Hosken writes, “The [investigation report] claims three recorded telephone calls between Mr. Rosica and his girlfriend depict a continuation of criminal conduct and the commission of future criminal conduct.”
But Hosken says the facts don’t support that claim. Hosken adds, “Based on the conclusions in the [report], it appears the claim is Mr. Rosica engaged in new cyberstalking activity in contravention of federal law. He did not.”
Hosken is asking the court to remove these claims from the documents.
Sentencing for Rosica has now been pushed to February 1. A new presentencing investigation document was filed on Wednesday, but that also remains sealed at this time.
