Target: Paul J. Fishman, New Jersey District Attorney
Goal: Overrule decision to allow cop to return to work after he forced woman to model lingerie for him.
Superior Court Judge Douglas Wolfson has ruled that a police officer, who demanded a woman model lingerie for him, can return to work. Anthony Sarni was fired from his police job in Edison, N.J. when he admitted to inappropriate behavior after responding to a hotel fire alarm. The alarm turned out to be a prank, but Sarni admits that he went to a woman’s hotel room with his sidearm and, after seeing shopping bags on the floor, asked her to model lingerie for him.
Judge Wolfson’s ruling outraged town and police officials who have zero-tolerance for such behavior. Sarni has been on suspension for this behavior for a couple years. If the suspension were allowed to continue for three years, Sarni would have been forced to return to the police academy. The Judge, therefore, sided with Sarni’s attorneys, who claimed that Sarni would suffer if he was not allowed to return to work and forced to go back to the academy instead. Although Sarni must still pass the fitness test, it’s unlikely he’ll be kept off the force.
Demand that this ruling is overturned and that Officer Sarni is not allowed to return to police work.
Dear Attorney Fishman,
In a miscarriage of justice, Officer Anthony Sarni is being allowed to return to police work. Sarni admits to using his position to force a woman to model lingerie for him after he responded to a false alarm at a hotel. He was immediately placed on suspension and has remained there for nearly three years. If his suspension were to reach or exceed more than three years, Sarni would be forced to return to the police academy.
His lawyers argued that such action would harm Sarni and asked that he be allowed to return to work. Superior Court Judge Douglas Wolfson agreed with this argument and ordered that Sarni be given back his gun and badge and allowed to return to work pending a fitness test. It is shameful that a police officer, who’s admitted to wrong-doing, is being given preferential treatment, minimizing both his impact on the victim and potential for causing future harm.
We demand that this ruling be immediately overturned and that Officer Sarni is not allowed to return to the police force.
