WATERTOWN — Jeffrey T. Cronk Jr., 31, Watertown, was charged Thursday by state police with first-degree offering a false instrument for filing and official misconduct.
Troopers say an investigation by the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision Office of Special Investigations found that Mr. Cronk falsified logbook entries stating that he had completed rounds to check on incarcerated individuals while working as a corrections officer at Adirondack Correctional Facility in Essex County when he was actually sleeping.
