Former Binghamton Parks Department Director John Whalen has been charged with felony grand larceny.

Binghamton Mayor Matthew Ryan says account irregularities were uncovered during an investigation conducted by the Broome County District Attorney’s office and Binghamton Police.  The investigation reaches back as far as 2007.

Whalen was a 39 year employee of the City of Binghamton who was due to retire last month. He resigned his position in November due to the investigation.

Whalen pleaded not guilty at his arraignment.

Second degree grand larceny involves funds or materials valued at $50,000 and carries a penalty of up to 15 years in prison.
