New York Mills, N.Y. - A New York Mills man is facing some serious charges after authorities say he sent an email and a fax to the Oneida County Office building, and then also sent an envelope there as well.

Sheriff's officials say Phillips then sent a fax to the Oneida County Office Building on April 26th contained harassing and slanderous comments made about a county employee.

Phillips also is accused of sending an envelope to the Oneida County Office Building that was delivered on May 10th containing a harassing/slanderous note for a county employee.

The name of the county employee involved in all three cases is not being released at this time.

Oneida County Sheriff's Officials say Phillips was located at a residence in the Village of New York Mills, he was interviewed at the residence and a search warrant was executed.

Phillips was arraigned late Friday afternoon in Utica City Court. He is charged with stalking, forgery and criminal impersonation.

Phillips was released and is due back in court on June 11th.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Unit was assisted by the Oneida County Sheriff's Office Forensic Identification Unit and the New York State Police Computer Crimes Unit out of Oneida, NY.
