Kinderhook, New York – On November 14, 2018, the New York State Police from the Livingston barracks arrested Joseph D. Shaw, age 22, of Schodack, NY, for Unlawful Surveillance in the 2nd degree, and Disseminating Unlawful Surveillance in the 1st degree, both class E felonies.
Investigators from SP Schodack in Troop G contacted their counterparts at SP Livingston with a lead for unlawful surveillance reported by a victim currently residing in North Carolina. Investigation found Shaw recorded a now estranged domestic partner unlawfully in the town of Kinderhook, at Shaw’s former residence. Shaw then disseminated that material unlawfully to acquaintances of the victim.
With further assistance of both Investigators and Troopers at SP Schodack, Shaw was located in the town of Schodack, and transported to SP Livingston.
Shaw was arraigned before the town of Stuyvesant Court, and remanded to the Columbia County Jail without bail due to a fugitive from justice status. Shaw has an active warrant for his arrest issued by a magistrate in the State of North Carolina for a similar incident. He is next scheduled to appear before the town of Kinderhook Court on November 20, 2018, at 6:00 p.m.
