Ex-State Employee and Army Reservist Charged With Larceny

KSAL StaffJuly 10, 2016

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – A former Connecticut state correction officer and Army reservist is accused of collecting state wages while serving time in a Kansas military prison.

The Hartford Courant reports Dennis Dockery, of Bloomfield, was arraigned Friday on charges of first-degree larceny by defrauding a public community and second-degree forgery.

Dockery worked at the Enfield Correctional Institution and was commanding officer of the New Haven-based 395th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion.

The 52-year-old was on active duty between April 2009 and October 2012. During that time, he was imprisoned for 17 months for assaulting a woman in Hamden.

Prosecutors allege Dockery forged his military orders so it appeared he was serving at Fort Leavenworth rather than incarcerated, fraudulently receiving $5,182 from the state.

It’s unclear whether Dockery has a lawyer. He’s due back in court Aug. 1.
