Ex-Roslyn school superintendent agrees to cooperate with prosecution

Sentencing of former Roslyn School Superintendent Frank Tassone has been postponed Wednesday after he agreed to cooperate with the prosecution.

Tassone pleaded guilty to his part in the $11 million Roslyn school spending scandal. Now, Tassone has agreed to testify against others in the scheme, including his live-in partner Stephen Signorelli. Signorelli is charged with submitting $219,000 in phony bills to Roslyn schools from his printing company. Signorelli?s hearing was also postponed.

Tassone?s attorney says his testimony would implicate all co-conspirators in the scandal, whether they have already been indicted or not. His hope is that Tassone?s cooperation would lessen his current plea deal of four to 12 years.
