Coventry Police reported today (April 26, 2013) that they have arrested former Coventry fire chief Joseph Michael Carilli on three new charges as a result of his contacting his alleged sexual assault victim.

According to Coventry Police Chief Mark Palmer, 53-year-old Carilli of 131 Wangumbaug Drive in Coventry, CT has been charged with:

Tampering with a witness (Class C felony)

Criminal violation of a protective order (Class D felony)

Harassment in the second degree (a misdemeanor)

According to the report, “the charges stem from Carilli allegedly making contact with his victim by mail in violation of court orders and conditions of release on his prior arrest.”

The report states Carilli is now being held in the Cheshire Correctional Center on his previous charges.

Carilli was previously arrested, on Feb. 14 2013, along with former firefighter Joe Fragoso of Coventry. Both were charged with sexual assault; Carilli was additionally charged with risk of injury to a minor.

Both men are members of the Coventry Volunteer Fire Association, which is commonly referred to as the South Coventry Fire Department.

Carilli was fire chief from June 2006 to November 30, 2012 after which he became the department’s Training Officer. Fragoso was a fire lieutenant at that department since June 2012.

Police say an investigation revealed that both men had been having sexual relations with members of the CVFA Junior Firefighter program.
