An employee at the Central New York Psychiatric Center in Marcy is facing felony charges after he allegedly submitted false time sheets, according to a news release from New York State Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott.
Damion Walton, 41, of Utica, is charged with ten counts of first-degree offering a false instrument for filing and third-degree grand larceny, all felonies.
According to Leahy Scott, while Walton was working as a Secure Care Treatment Aide 2 at the CNY Psychiatric Center from Oct. 2016 through April 2018, he allegedly arrived late or left early repeatedly but submitted time sheets that said he had worked his full eight-hour shift from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
Walton is accused of stealing more than $3,000 in wages that he wasn’t entitled to.
Walton was arraigned on the charges on Wednesday and sent to the Oneida County Jail on $10,000 bail. He’s scheduled to appear in the Town of Marcy Court on Oct. 23.
