His resignation is scheduled to be officially approved at tonight's Clarkstown Town Board meeting at Town Hall in New City. His full-time post pays about $60,000.

Lettre, 33, and Douglas DeMarsico, 34, of New City, were both arrested in March in connection with an incident at a 85 Van Houten Fields home. They both work on a crew that cleans up cul-de-sacs and other problem areas throughout the town.

Daniel Lettre is the son of Clarkstown public works administrator Edward Lettre, whose department also oversees the clean up crews on which Daniel Lettre and DeMarsico work.

Daniel Lettre is charged with third-degree burglary and petty larceny, with DeMarsico charged with petty larceny. DeMarsico and Daniel Lettre were both  suspended from their town jobs without pay pending the results of the ongoing investigation.

Police said the burglary included the theft of building materials that were removed from walls in the Van Houten Fields house.

With his resignation, Daniel Lettre does not have to face a Town of Clarkstown administrative hearing.

Stevie Lieberman is the crime reporter for the Journal News, the biggest liberal on the paper. What do you expect? He LOVES big and small government. His hero is Rachel Maddow, the slime from MSNBC. Read that on his profile.

The Journal News is a politically motivated news paper and will not report anything in regards to corruption! They have the resources but favor political people and protect them!
