Felton Admits Troopergate Role, Won’t Be Fined

ALBANY—Preston Felton, the acting director of the State Police during the Troopergate affair, has settled with the Commission on Public Integrity. Felton admitted he violated the Public Officers law but will pay no fine because the commission does not have the power to levy one.

Barry Ginsberg, the executive director of the commission said that Felton “received the same treatment as his boss and his boss’s boss,” William Howard and Rich Baum.

Darren Dopp, who served as Eliot Spitzer’s communications director during the affair, is fighting a $10,000 fine that was levied against him for his role in the affair.
