Victims were assaulted in two of the cases and a suspect was arrested in one.

Retired Suffolk County Sheriff's Office investigator Ed Walsh swindled taxpayers by going on golf outings, sitting at poker tables and attending political meetings instead of performing his duties as a lieutenant, prosecutors alleged Wednesday during opening arguments at the Suffolk County Conservative Party chairman's federal fraud trial.

Walsh is on trial for scheming to defraud taxpayers of $80,000 in no-show work at the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office and Suffolk County jail. Prosecutors allege Walsh falsely represented that he was working while he was actually gambling at Foxwood’s Casino in Connecticut, golfing, or conducting Conservative Party business on the taxpayer dime. The party big was also accused of lying to FBI agents when he allegedly claimed he worked flex time for the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office.

The new commish will be tasked with cleaning up the mess left by a former police chief who was arrested on corruption charges. Among his first moves was announcing plans to invite the FBI to work more closely on the Long Island Serial Killer case, gang investigations and other probes. He also unveiled plans to revamp the internal affairs unit, crack down on drug houses, and hinted at an upcoming "unprecedented" law enforcement partnership.
