Three inmates have been charged in four separate incidents that occurred within the Correctional Facility.

According to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol, on October 18, 2021, Inmate Alfredo Capoccetta was confined to the jail and damaged county property. The property consisted of lighting, and the damage was in excess of $1,500.00. Capoccetta was charged with criminal mischief in the second degree a class D felony. He was arraigned in Whitestown Court. At the time of the arraignment Capoccetta was being released on the original charges that he was in for, so due to bail reform, he was also released on the new charges. He will return to court at a later date.

On November 15, 2021, Inmate Thomas Taverne lit papers and other items on fire in his cell, then exited his cell and closed the door. When corrections officers discovered the fire several minutes later, Taverne became combative and began fighting officers and throwing chairs at them. The officers had to secure Taverne in order for them to get to the cell and put out the fire. After securing Taverne, officers were able to extinguish the fire. Taverne was charged by investigators with attempted arson in the second degree, a class C felony. Taverne was arraigned in Whitestown Court. Bail was set at $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond. He was remanded back to the correctional facility and will return to court at a later date. The Sheriff’s arson investigators were called in and have ruled the fire incendiary in nature. The investigation is continuing.

On November 17, 2021, Inmate Michael Plumley assaulted another inmate in the jail. He repeatedly punched the inmate in the head and face, causing a cut next to the inmate's eye. The inmate was treated at a local hospital and received stitches to close the wound. Plumley was charged with assault in the second degree a class D felony.

Then on December 6, 2021, Plumley attacked an officer when the officer entered Plumley’s cell to serve dinner, punching the officer several times in the face and head. The officer was able to exit the cell and close the door. Fortunately, the officer suffered only scratches. Plumley was charged with attempted assault in the second degree, a class E felony.

Plumley’s charges for November 17th and December 6th have been filed in Whitestown Court. Plumley is being held on his original charges and will be arraigned in Whitestown Court, on the new charges, at a later date.
