New York Parole Board Chairman George Alexander Quits After Stealing Laptop Computer From Erie County


ALBANY, NEW YORK – New York officials say the head of the state Parole Division is resigning after investigators found he stole a government laptop that his teenage son used to look up adult Web sites.

Inspector General Joseph Fisch says Parole Board Chairman George Alexander took the computer home in 2007 when he worked as the director and commissioner of Erie County’s probation department.

Officials say he never returned the computer and denied having it. An antitheft monitor installed on the laptop traced it to his house.

Alexander told officials he forgot he had it. Fisch says Alexander’s son had used the computer to access Web sites including MySpace.com, Facebook.com, and various adult sites.

Alexander is expected to face charges.
