Sure you're shocked Scott. You'd be knocked over wit a feather if anyone knew all the tales that make this look sedate.

Scott's quote - Blah blah blah blah shocked blah blah blah blah didn't have any idea the long term perv was a long term perv neither did my "mentor Mike Arcuri.


The Oneida County District Attorney’s Office plans to recuse itself from a case involving a longtime Democratic strategist and retired Utica College professor who recently was accused of exposing himself at a South Utica park.

Richard J. Emmert, 69, of Bolton Road, New Hartford, was among 12 men nabbed by Utica police in an undercover operation at Roscoe Conkling Park following numerous complaints of men engaging in sexual acts at the park.

Emmert was charged with exposure of a person, a violation, and public lewdness, a misdemeanor, police said. He could not be reached Monday.

Emmert was District Attorney Scott McNamara’s campaign manager when McNamara first ran for DA in 2007. Emmert also helped former Michael Arcuri get elected in 1993 as the first Democratic DA in Oneida County in nearly 50 years, and then played a role in Arcuri’s later campaigns for U.S. Congress.

On Monday, McNamara said he was “shocked” to hear of the arrest, and that his office’s links to Emmert, who retired from Utica College in 2006 as a political science professor, leave him no choice but to ask that a special outside prosecutor be assigned to handle the case.

“He has a professional relationship with numerous people in this office, those who taught with him, and through political events, so there is a clear appearance of impropriety if we were to prosecute his case,” McNamara said.

McNamara said he expected to file a request to be recused from the case sometime in the near future.

Utica police turned their attention to the park, just off of Valley View Golf Course, after it was reported that the men would meet each other for the purposes of performing sexual acts on themselves and each other, police said.

They would also accost people passing by, often times propositioning them while exposing themselves, police said.

When officers checked this area, they found several discarded items used during the acts as well as blankets, clothing and undergarments.

An undercover officer walked the area of the park and was approached numerous times by men, who would then expose and touch themselves, police said. On several occasions, a suspect would allegedly grope the officer in a sexual manner while propositioning him.

This type of behavior has been “going on for years” at the park and this isn’t the first time Utica police have responded to such complaints and made arrests, police Sgt. Steven Hauck said. But police conducted this sting operation after recent complaints suggested the behavior was becoming more brazen, Hauck said.
