BARRINGTON, R.I. (WPRI) – A Barrington police sergeant resigned from the force on Wednesday after he pleaded guilty to a cyberstalking charge.

Joseph Andreozzi  was sentenced to consecutive one-year suspended sentences with probation after pleading guilty to cyberstalking and obstructing a police officer. He also officially resigned from the Barrington Police Department.

“Mr. Andreozzi’s agreement to plead guilty today with convictions on two criminal charges and separately to resign from employment with the town as a police officer was of the utmost importance to both the State and the Town of Barrington,” Barrington Police Chief John LaCross said in a release. “The department will continue to move forward as always providing the best quality services possible to the Town of Barrington.”

Andreozzi was convicted last year on cyberstalking and obstruction of justice charges, but he was granted a retrial.
