Campatelli asserts her innocence; SJC panel to take up case

Suffolk County Register of Probate Patricia Campatelli will remain on paid leave indefinitely after an outside investigator found her to be “not truthful” in recounting her personal conduct in a series of office controversies, say court employees and Campatelli herself.

Top court officials have asked a committee of the Supreme Judicial Court to determine whether to issue further discipline against Campatelli, court employees and Campatelli said. She has been on paid leave since Jan. 14 after reports that she assaulted an employee following a Christmas party.
