Court documents: Taconic investigator is felon
Court documents show a private investigator hired by Diane Schuler's family to investigate the Taconic State Parkway wrong-way crash is a convicted felon.
According to court documents, private investigator Thomas Ruskin resigned from the NYPD in 1999 after admitting he conspired with a friend to defraud airlines of tickets. Ruskin got five years probation.
Irving Anolik, who represents the family of two victims, says his clients were shocked to learn Ruskin has a criminal past. Anolik says Ruskin's history puts his credibility in question.
