NEW YORK. – Rosemary García, a former Dominican secretary at the Providence Police Department (Rhode Island), was sentenced Wednesday to two years probation, after pleading guilty, in an agreement with prosecutors, for selling reports of injured injured to a city chiropractor.
The same sentence was imposed on her husband, Miguel García, who admitted that he was responsible for bringing copies of the reports to Dr. Eugene M. Kramer, owner of the “England Spine & Disc Center” clinic, located on Broadway Street in Providence , who bought them, but the doctor was not charged in the case.
Prosecutors said the couple residing in building 10 of Community Drive Street in the town of Cranston received deferred sentences of two years after pleading guilty to conspiring and selling accident reports for six months in 2017 to Kramer.
She also admitted to accessing Providence police computers for fraudulent purposes and received a two-year sentence.
In exchange for their allegations before Judge Joseph A. Montalbano and Prosecutor Jeffrey Morin, they accepted to cancel a charge to each one of conspiracy and unfair conversion against Rosemary, and a charge of conspiracy and to receive stolen property against her husband.
The 38-year-old woman was canceled from Providence Police in December 2017 after her arrest in June. Investigators accused the man of 49, after his wife acknowledged that he had helped
According to Morin, police began investigating Rosemary after receiving a report that she was delivering accident crashes to a chiropractor. They saw the printed reports at their workplace and then took them to the chiropractor’s office.
In a raid on Kramer’s office, police found reports of the crashes, according to prosecutors.
Instead of paying the Police Department for the reports, Kramer paid the Garcia hundreds of dollars every week, investigators said.
Kramer was not charged and continues to work in his clinic.
Under deferred judgment, the Garcia must comply with the terms of the agreement, maintain peace and maintain good behavior for the next two years.
The agreement specifies that they must keep the court informed of their whereabouts at all times and remain constantly employed. The court will determine if they have violated the deal.
If the Garcia complete the period of postponement without violations, they will be exempted from the charges and the case will be sealed, in accordance with state law.
The Garcia owned the restaurant “The Vault Lounge,” a troubled nightclub located in the Federal Hill area in downtown Providence, which lost its liquor license due to persistent complaints from neighbors about lawsuits and daily scandals inside and out of business
