Family Justice Center of Sonoma County : National Sexual Assault Hotline : or online. It has been more than a week since law enforcement opened a criminal investigation into Windsor Mayor Dominic Foppoli after at least six women publicly accused him sexual assault and abuse in encounters spanning from to last year. The new probe launched by Sonoma County Sheriff Mark Essick includes a team of five detectives and a sergeant and its scope includes all reported allegations, including those documented in recent news stories, he said.
Essick declined to give a timeline but said the public should trust his investigators to be thorough. Some of those doubts and public criticism stem from the official response to two prior warnings about Foppoli in s to Windsor Town Hall.
One came in alleging predatory behavior toward female guests and employees at his winery. The other came in February and described the mayor as accused of rape by multiple women. Both warnings were dealt with behind closed doors. Only upon receiving that did MacNab provide both written warnings to Windsor Police Chief Ruben Martinez, the town disclosed for the first time on Tuesday. All we had was hearsay. When MacNab delivered the warning to law enforcement, he also provided for the first time the warning the City Council had received inbefore his tenure as city manager. Again, law enforcement did not contact the author of that.
Its allegations, even if proven, were at best misdemeanor charges — sexual battery, perhaps, Naugle said in the interview and Martinez said in the public meeting. The statute of limitations for such charges would have expired, they said.
The writer remained anonymous, her name redacted by Windsor in public records. But with her she sought to warn town officials about Foppoli as he rose in political power after first winning office in Her missive barely blunted that rise. In public, though, they said nothing about the warning.
The day he was passed over for mayor in DecemberFoppoli gave a speech where he said charitable work and campaigning for reelection were occupying his time. He asked, therefore, that the council defer his appointment as mayor for a year. He did not, however, re. I do not want my presence or participation to create a distraction or cause any additional hurt for our residents. He said he had interacted with the mayor only on a professional level as elected officials. Navarro, the law enforcement oversight agency director, said there was no indication of any outward conflict of interest in the case, but that the agency was paying attention.
