Albert Forlizzi II has fallen a long way. Now unemployed, the former supervisor at the State Department of Revenue and former mayor of Pen­­brook has been sentenced to four years probation after pleading no contest to charges of indecent assault and official oppression.

Forlizzi will also have to register as a sex offender and pay $2,000 in fines.

A contrite Forlizzi apologized to the court and said he would “do whatever the court wants [him] to do.” He claims he has been rejected for 15 jobs because of his conviction.

Forlizzi harassed a long-time state employee from November 2011 to August 2013, telling her he was the one who “saved her job” and therefore she “owed” him.

Note: Sexual harassers seldom think of long-term consequences of their behavior. One way to deter harassment may be to make it clear that offenses could have dire legal consequences.
