Former Edison Police Officer’s Wife Admitted to Pretrial Program

Edison Manalapan Township

Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey announced that Alycia Dotro was admitted today into a probationary program known as PreTrial Intervention, or PTI, in connection with two separate cases pending against her in Superior Court.

Alycia Dotro, 42, of Manalapan appeared today before Middlesex County Superior Court Judge Pedro J. Jimenez, Jr., in New Brunswick and was admitted to the program for two years, under certain conditions set by Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Russell Curley.

In one case she was charged with hindering in the fourth degree by providing false information during the investigation of her husband, Michael Dotro, and his involvement in a fire at the home of another Edison officer.

She was also charged with official misconduct in the second degree, conspiracy in the second degree and criminal mischief in the fourth degree in connection with her criminal involvement in slashing the tires on a car owned by an Edison woman. Both of these cases resulted in indictments being handed up by a Middlesex County grand jury.

PTI is a diversionary program typically offered to first-time offenders and upon successful completion of the program, all charges are dismissed.

Alycia Dotro was indicted, after an extensive investigation by the Detective Bureau of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office led by Detective Donald Heck and Detective Christopher Pennisi.
