UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The assault trial of a local correction officer wrapped up Thursday without the officer ever taking the stand and telling his side of the story.
Jurors, though, did hear from some correction officers Thursday in the trial of fellow C.O., Michael Wehby.
On the stand, Corrections Officer James Alley discussed how other officers treated him once he came forward about what he saw the day Wehby allegedly beat inmate Jose Rivera.
Alley was still on the witness stand at Noon on Thursday continuing his testimony he began the day prior. Alley was an eyewitness to part of the scuffle at the center of the charges against Wehby.
Alley testified that after he told the Department of Corrections Inspector General that he saw C.O. Wehby stomp on Rivera's head after Wehby and two other Corrections Officers had already subdued him, his fellow officers shunned him at work.
"My locker had been dumped and 'rat' had been written on it in big letters," says Alley.
