Gary Schaffrick former campaign manager to Mayor Ken Cockayne and State Representative Cara D’Amato has been sentenced to 10 years of jail, execution suspended with 5 years of probation.
This means that Gary Schaffrick, although a felony is in place, Schaffrick does not have to serve it immediately if at all.
Schaffrick is a long-time Bristol Republican leader, ex-state GOP treasurer and former Bristol Housing Authority Chairperson.
Schaffrick was accused of bathing nude with a 5-year-old boy.
In the police report, investigators say that Schaffrick openly bragged to relatives about how much he enjoyed bath time with a 5-year-old during sleepovers at Schaffrick’s residence.
Schaffrick took baths with the boy and put him in his lap while both were nude, according to the warrant, which said the two sometimes shared a bed.
Schaffrick was charged with one count of risk of injury/impairing the morals of a minor.
According to the Bristol Press, “The 5-year-old boy often had a bad attitude for several days after returning from a sleepover at Schaffrick’s, and the boy told a social worker that Schaffrick would give him candy to sleep in the same bed as him, instead of the extra bed in the apartment.
Schaffrick continues to play an active role with Bristol Republicans and the Bristol Housing Authority.
