BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - A conference has been scheduled for mid-June in a state investigation of a sexual discrimination complaint against the City of Binghamton and police Chief Joseph Zikuski.

Zikuski was placed on paid administrative leave in March after a female police officer in his department filed a complaint accusing him of making sexual advances toward her and others. Officer Kristi Sager says unfair disciplinary actions were brought against her by the city at Zikuski’s request after she repeatedly turned down the chief’s advances.

The New York State Division of Human Rights is handling the complaint, which claims Sager was charged with being “off post” last August and September after a tracking device was placed on her vehicle in an act of retaliation.

Sager remains on suspension.
