Additional details are emerging on the criminal charges facing Boston District Fire Chief Edward A. Scigliano IV, who was arraigned yesterday on charges of larceny and procurement fraud.
Prosecutors claim Chief Scigliano’s scheme involved two well known and reputable Boston area fire service vendors, Greenwood Emergency Vehicles and Northeast Rescue Systems.
Chief Scigliano’s attorney, Michael Doolin, was quoted as saying: “My client is an individual whose entire life has been devoted to service — service to his family, service to our country and service to the Boston Fire Department. He’s not guilty of these charges and looks forward to his day in court. He’s a person who has risen through the ranks. He’s a highly respected firefighter.”
