HOOSICK, N. Y. -- The outgoing Town of Hoosick Supervisor Keith Cipperly will still face charges of official misconduct and falsifying business records in the second degree -- but not in Hoosick.
A recently scheduled hearing in the Town of Hoosick Court was adjourned prior to the Dec. 5 date, after the court recused itself from the proceedings.
"Sometimes local court judges like to consult the law over what is the best course of action prior to hearing a case," said Rensselaer District Attorney Richard McNally, whose office will be prosecuting the case.
It has yet to be rescheduled but officials say it will be reassigned to the Pittstown Town Court.
"We just got the recusal letter prior to the initial court date," said Rensselaer Supreme County Court Chief Clerk Richard Reilly, Jr, who noted it was also his understanding that Cipperly did not go before a judge at that time.
The earliest [date of appearance] will be probably after the first of the year," said Pittstown Court Clerk Colleen Allsop.
Cipperly is set to preside over one final meeting of the Town Board before Supervisor-elect Mark Surdam takes office.
The monthly meeting was due to be held on Dec. 9 but was rescheduled and will now be held Tuesday, Dec. 30 at 7 p.m.
