"A Middlesex County grand jury has indicted four Edison police officers for allegedly planning retaliation against a North Brunswick police officer because of a drunken-driving charge.An 11-count indictment, handed up on Oct. 24, charges officers Michael A. Dotro, 37, of Manalapan; Brian Favretto, 39, of Brick; and Victor E. Aravena, 42, and William H. Gesell, 46, both of Edison, with conspiracy and official misconduct.


Dotro, Aravena and Gesell were charged in March with fourth-degree counts of conspiracy and official misconduct.

The officers allegedly planned between Jan. 18, 2012, and May 1, 2012, to retaliate against the North Brunswick officer by improperly accessing information about him and performing surveillance of him and his travel habits, according to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.

In addition, Gesell was charged with unlawfully accessing a police computer system, along with a related count of official misconduct for seeking information on the North Brunswick officer.

An investigation by the prosecutor determined that the retaliation was planned after the North Brunswick police officer arrested an associate of Dotro on a charge of driving while intoxicated.

Dotro subsequently conspired with his three fellow police officers to retaliate against the North Brunswick officer, according to authorities. No actual retaliation was undertaken, however."
