The Oneida County District Attorney’s Office is presenting another case to a grand jury against the County’s Independence Party Chairman, John Dote, according to witnesses who have been called to testify.

While officials in the District Attorney’s Office said they could not confirm or deny that, witnesses who have been subpeoned say the case involves Dote’s handling of money given to the Independence Party.

Sources say many notable elected officials have been called to testify, including current Congressman Michael Arcuri, Congressman-elect Richard Hanna, County Clerk Sandy DePerno and former Utica Mayor Tim Julian.

Earlier this year, Dote was indicted on a misdemeanor charge of impersonating a police officer. That case is still pending. He has pleaded not guilty.
