Local News - - -

ITHACA, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The Mayor of Ithaca is clarifying a tweet that was sent out earlier where it was mentioned the officer directly involved in a recent investigation was fired.

Mayor Svante Myrick says his tweet was not worded properly and should have said the city is seeking to terminate the officer. This comes after a report revealing a failure to fully investigate nearly a decade’s worth of reported crimes, including reported sex offenses.  

The name of the officer involved has not yet been released.
