The father of a Cooperstown teen who has admitted trying to kill a classmate last year because he was black has been accused of recently stalking the 17-year-old victim, authorities said Monday.
Anthony Pacherille Sr., 44, however, believes that the fourth-degree stalking and first-degree harassment misdemeanor charges he now faces are the Otsego County district attorney’s way of getting revenge for disparaging remarks Pacherille Sr. has made publicly.
These latest charges come just days before Pacherille Sr.’s son, Anthony Pacherille Jr., 17, is due to be sentenced in Otsego County Court Friday morning to 11 years in prison after previously pleading guilty to attempted second-degree murder.
During his plea April 29, Pacherille Jr. admitted that he chased Wesley Lippitt into the Cooperstown police station, where he shot Lippitt once in the arm before then turning the gun on himself in a failed suicide attempt on April 2, 2010.
After that proceeding, Pacherille Sr. furiously expressed his belief that his mentally ill son had been “railroaded” by the judicial system, that Lippitt’s family had vengefully sought their “pound of flesh,” and that District Attorney John Muehl would have “blood on his hands” if anything happened to his son in prison.
