Nicholas G. Flanigan, a suspended officer from the Cayuga County Probation Department, is facing further legal scrutiny after allegations surfaced about him abusing his authority.

Cayuga County District Attorney Brittany Grome Antonacci told The Citizen that following a pretrial conference on Wednesday, Flanigan’s case will advance to the Cayuga County Court, contingent upon a grand jury’s review.

Flanigan, an Auburn resident, was arrested by the New York State Police on Oct. 3, accused of exploiting his power for personal and financial advantages. State police further allege that Flanigan not only failed in his duty to adequately supervise probationers but also engaged in improper communications with them.

He’s pleaded not guilty to the charges. Officials say he is suspended with pay at this time.
