Brian Sloan Admitted He Left the Scene of a Motor Vehicle Crash that Caused Injuries and then Falsified Documents to Conceal the Nature of the Crash (SUFFOLK COUNTY, N.Y.) – Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney today announced that Brian Sloan, 57, of Patchogue, a civilian mechanic formerly employed by the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, pleaded guilty to one count of felony Leaving the Scene of an Incident with Personal Injury Without Reporting, and one count of Official Misconduct. “This defendant admitted to fleeing the scene of a motor vehicle crash that injured another driver, which was compounded by his filing of false documents with the Sheriff’s Office in an effort to conceal what he had done,” said District Attorney Tierney. “Keeping our county’s roadways safe is a priority for my office, and we will continue to hold accountable those who endanger the lives of other motorists. I, again, thank the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office for their cooperation and professionalism in this investigation.” According to the investigation and the defendant’s admissions during his guilty plea allocution, on December 23, 2022, Sloan was operating a Ford F-250 pickup truck owned by the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office on Patchogue Yaphank Road in Patchogue when he drove through a red traffic light, crashing into a sedan which had been making a lawful left-hand turn. 2 The collision caused injuries to the sedan’s driver and totaled the sedan. Sloan then fled the scene without stopping or exchanging documentation. The driver of the sedan was taken by ambulance to Long Island Community Hospital for treatment. An off-duty New York City police officer who witnessed the crash followed the F-250 from the scene and recorded its license plate number. Sloan later falsely reported to the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office that he had been involved in a one-car motor vehicle crash. Sloan completed, signed, and submitted two separate documents to the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office indicating that on December 23, 2022, the county-owned F250 he was operating traveled over an icy roadway, which resulted in his collision with a guardrail at a different location in Patchogue, approximately two miles from the actual crash location. Sloan was indicted on March 29, 2023, and retired from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office on April 24, 2023. On June 14, 2023, Sloan pleaded guilty before Acting Supreme Court Justice, the Honorable Steven A. Pilewski, to the charges of Leaving the Scene of an Incident with Personal Injury Without Reporting, a Class E felony, and Official Misconduct, a Class A misdemeanor. Sloan is due back in court for sentencing on August 9, 2023. He is being represented by John Loturco, Esq. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Katharine R. D’Aquila of the Public Corruption Bureau.
