The former town supervisor in Geddes has escaped any jail time after he pleaded guilty to a felony Eavesdropping charge.
Manny Falcone was accused of placing secret recording devices in the town hall and recording conversations. Investigators say Falcone wanted to monitor what he called problematic employees. The recording devices were in place for 18 month and the town board had no idea the system was installed.
Falcone's attorney claims that none of the recorded conversations never led to anything and that his client has had a long record of community service. Falcone received a conditional discharge in the case, which means he has to stay out of trouble for the next three years and won't face any other restrictions.
