Sergeant who was double dipping should have received jail

I’m pleased that Dean Covis can never again defraud the people of Orleans County by playing the role of a protector and first responder.

I must. however, take the judge in this case to task. No jail time for a person that blatantly abused the power entrusted in him by the citizens of Orleans County. Spent our taxpayer dollars through fraud for personal gain. And no jail time.

Covis said in a June 11 Orleans Hub article he is highly trained in law enforcement and “went above and beyond.”

I say a highly trained manipulator much more concerned with his creature comforts than the wellbeing of the community he purports to serve.
