Outgoing Pelham Manor Police Chief Al Mosiello hires lawyer amid email scandal

The embattled outgoing police chief of Pelham Manor has hired a lawyer.



Prominent Yonkers lawyer John Murtagh has confirmed to News 12 that he will represent Al Mosiello amid a racist email scandal that forced him out of his job.



Mosiello, who served as Pelham Manor's top cop for more than three decades, agreed to retire last month after the insensitive online jokes he forwarded to colleagues were made public.
