Rockland County District Attorney Tom Walsh announced an additional felony indictment of a Rockland County Corrections Officer stemming from a continuing investigation into criminal activity inside of the Rockland County Jail. The additional felony charges were handed down by a Rockland County Grand Jury late last week.

John Kezek, 35, of Knoxville, Tennessee, formerly of Florida, NY turned himself into Rockland County District Attorney’s Office. Kezek was indicted on Criminal Sexual Act 1st (B felony), Criminal Sexual Act 3rd(E felony) and Official Misconduct (A misdemeanor). The charges were based on allegations made by a female victim who came into contact with Kezek while working in his official capacity.

“Due to the nature of the crimes and to protect the identity of the victim, very limited information can be released at this time. We ask that any person who may have been a victim, a witness, or anyone who has information to these incidents, please send an anonymous tip by downloading the RocklandCO DA Tip 411 app (available in the APP store or Google Play) or contact local law enforcement. You can also text the keyword ROCKLANDCODA to 847411, type in your tip information and hit send.”

Rockland County District Attorney Tom Walsh said, “The latest indictments of Mr. Kezek reveal an evil course of conduct, leaving the victims to put their lives back together. My office will continue to pursue justice for the victims of sexual crimes. Rockland will not tolerate this horrific behavior. I would like to personally thank Rockland County Sheriff Lou Falco for his assistance in this investigation.”
