DiNapoli Suspends Pension of Crooked School Attorney

From the Comptrollers press release:
"State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office suspended the pension of Albert D’Agostino. The action is part of DiNapoli’s on-going review of the records of every attorney in the Retirement System.

“As we find problems in the Retirement System, we’re fixing them,” DiNapoli said. “We’ll continue to dig until we’re confident that state pensions are only going to those people that rightly earned them.”

DiNapoli suspended D’Agostino’s $106,700 annual pension while his office examines the appropriateness of service credit D’Agostino received from Nassau County, Lawrence Union Free School District, Valley Stream Union Free School District, North Merrick Union Free School District, the Town of Hempstead and the Village of Valley Stream. D’Agostino retired in October 2000."
