Town wants former chief to repay $12,000 payout

Posted: Updated:
COVENTRY, CT (WFSB) -

Town officials confirmed that Joseph Carilli secretly received a $12,000 payout when he stepped down as chief of the South Coventry Fire Department last fall.

At the time Carilli was accused of harassing female employees at a Dunkin' Donuts in town.

Just last month, he was arrested for having a sexual relationship with a junior firefighter starting when she was 15.

Town officials also confirm the Coventry Volunteer Fire Association intends to recover the money given to Carilli, possibly by suing him.

State records show Carilli also served eight months in prison in the mid 1980s for a sexual offense involving a 14-year-old.

Carilli, who is married with children, is being held on a $250,000 bond
