Testimony Ends In Suspended Police Officer's Hearing


Testimony is over in the administrative hearing for suspended Gouverneur Police Officer Steve Young, who the village accused of stealing gas from village pumps.

Young again took the stand in his own defense before being questioned by Village Attorney Henry Leader Tuesday.

Young was allowed to get free gas from the village gas tank as chief of the fire department under contract with the village.

The village claims Young used a different key than the one given to the fire department to get his gas and charged with official misconduct among other things.

Both sides have until July 31 to submit written closing statements to hearing officer Marlinda LaValley, who will then review the evidence and render a decision on whether Young should be reinstated or not.

Young remains suspended with pay.
