A state trooper from Rome is facing charges after she allegedly harassed someone online, according to New York State Police.
Jennifer Daignault, 31, is charged with felony first-degree coercion and misdemeanor second-degree coercion.
Police say Daignault, who works as a New York State Trooper, used a false identity online to harass a Long Island resident. Police say the charges are related to conduct that happened when Daignault was off-duty, and it’s not related to her employment with state police.
The Associated Press reports that Daignault graduated from the state police academy in 2016, and the alleged harassment occurred in June.
Daignault was arraigned in Nassau County Court and released on her own recognizance, pending a future court date.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
