LEE, Mass. -- The Town of Lee's Board of Selectmen is meeting tonight to discuss Police Chief Joseph Buffis' future with the department.
Earlier this month, Buffis was indicted for allegedly extorting thousands of dollars from people facing prostitution charges.
Police said in February 2012, Buffis took $4,000 and deposited it into a charitable fund which he controlled. They said he then withdrew almost all of the money.
Buffis has since been suspended without pay. Former Lee Police Chief Ronald Glidden is now acting chief on an interim basis.
Buffis faces extortion and money laundering charges. If convicted, he could face a maximum of 20 years in prison on each of the counts.
