SCHENECTADY — A 31-year-old woman faces misdemeanor charges for allegedly stalking and sending sexually explicit nude photos to the cellphone of the wife of a veteran Schenectady cop when he tried to break off their affair, according to a criminal complaint.
Kimberly Duncan is charged with fourth-degree stalking and third-degree obscenity in the incident between March 4 and Monday, according to court papers. Duncan is accused of sending “nude photographs depicting her breast and vaginal area with an obscene performance” to the cellphone of the wife of Sean Clifford, 48.
He is the older brother of a police Chief Eric Clifford and a seasoned police canine officer.
Sean Clifford said in a statement to the Times Union said he is sorry for his conduct.
“This is a difficult time for my family and I am doing all I can to protect them,” he said. “I sincerely apologize to my family for the embarrassment that this has brought them.”
On Friday, the police chief referred questions to the New York State Police.
State Police spokesman Mark Cepiel was out the office Friday and could not be reached for comment.
The investigation was handled by Investigator James Castiglione with the State Police barracks in Princetown.
The complaint alleges that from March 4 to April 16, Duncan “at various times and various locations, including a restaurant in Schenectady … intentionally, knowingly, and unlawfully and for no legitimate purpose engaged in a course of conduct directed at” Sean Clifford’s wife by calling her cellphone to cause fear in the woman and her family.
Duncan was arraigned Wednesday in Schenectady City Court and released pending a May 2 court appearance.
