Officers suspended after texting 16-year-old

Posted: Updated:

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — Stamford police have suspended two officers without pay after finding text messages they allegedly sent to a 16-year-old girl.

Police Chief Jon Fontneau tells The Stamford Advocate (http://bit.ly/10eIr2y) that 43-year-old Robert Macari and 28-year-old William Garay engaged in conduct unbecoming officers.

Macari has been suspended for 30 days. Garay's suspension is for 10 days.

Fontneau says the girl reported in May she was sexually involved with Macari, but later declined to cooperate in an investigation. Police say a forensic examination of the officer's cell phones found sexual texts to the teen.

Neither officer has been charged with a crime. The age of consent in Connecticut is 16.

Attempts to reach the officers for comment Thursday morning were unsuccessful. No working phone numbers for either officer could be found.
