CopSync CEO Ronald A. Woessner was fired last weekend, according to a March 28, 2017 press release, and I’m wondering if it had anything to do with my earlier posts about an alleged private stock sale to officials in Robertson County, Texas.
As I reported on January 6, 2017, a law enforcement source told me that Dallas-based CopSync made the private stock offering to county officials shortly before they voted on a contract with the company, which specializes in data sharing among law enforcement agencies. In response to a letter from me, Mr. Woessner did not expressly confirm the Robertson County incident, but he seemed to confirm the general practice of making private stock sales to government decision makers.
On January 30, 2017, I reported that CopSync’s outside directors hired a Florida law firm to investigate the allegations in my letter, and the following day I reported that my law enforcement source had been interviewed by the FBI. I’ve since asked CopSync officials for information about the internal investigation, but I never received a response.
Here’s the text of an email that I sent to CopSync directors Luisa Ingargiola and Larry Schafran on March 25, 2017, the day after Mr. Woessner was fired:
