ALBANY COUNTY The New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation in Latham on Friday, Feb. 28, arrested Gabriel Rodriguez, 39, of Guilderland, for felony computer trespass and falsifying business records in the first degree along with a misdemeanor charge of official misconduct.
The charges stem from an investigation that began earlier this year by State Police after a Department of Criminal Justice Services audit was conducted upon request from The Albany County Sheriff’s Office. Rodriguez is currently on suspension with the Sheriff’s Office on unrelated charges. The DCJS audit was requested after officials in the Sheriff’s Office discovered that he had used a department computer to make unlawful criminal history inquiries of people from the DCJS database while he was in an official capacity.
Rodriguez was arraigned in the Village of Voorheesville Court by Court Justice Margaret Adkins and released on his own recognizance. A special prosecutor has been assigned to this case.
