An Erie attorney is the subject of an investigation by Erie County prison officials and government administration.

Erie County officials confirm that Attorney Rick Filippi is the subject of an investigation into reports of inappropriate behavior by a visitor at the Erie County Prison.  

We have not been able to confirm the nature of the inappropriate behavior in question.  We are reaching out to Attorney Filippi for comment.

We do know, however, that Filippi has been banned from what they call ‘contact visitation,’ but he may still visit prisoners and speak over the phone, separated by glass. 

Stay tuned for more.
