State supervisor charged with sex crimes

Posted: Updated:

A former supervisor in the state Department of Revenue has been arrested for having unwanted indecent contact with a woman he supervised.

Albert Forlizzi II, 58, of Harrisburg, was charged Monday by Pennsylvania Capitol Police with aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault, official oppression, stalking, indecent exposure and unlawful restraint, according to Dauphin County prosecutors.

The victim told police that Forlizzi's sexual advances started shortly after she was transferred to his department in November 2011 and continued until August 2013, authorities said.

She said she was afraid to come forward sooner because she feared losing her job.

The woman told investigators that when she resisted Forlizzi's advances, he told her she "owed him" for saving her job, and her co-workers said Forlizzi often intimidated employees by bragging that he knew people in high places and had others fired or arrested, according to prosecutors.

Forlizzi was arraigned before a district judge and released on $25,000 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing was scheduled Jan. 9.
