Description

In Schenectady, New York, a school maintenance man named Steve Raucci works his way up the ranks for 30 years, until finally he's in charge of the maintenance department. That's when he starts messing with his employees. Teasing them at meetings. Punishing them with crummy work assignments. Or worse things, like secretly slashing their tires in the middle of the night.

Ten years after his arrest, Steve Raucci broke his silence and gave an interview to Paul Nelson at the Times Union in Albany.

He claims he's not a sociopath, but in his interview 10yrs after being imprisoned Rossi says he chose those methods because "property damage wouldn't get him jail-time". If that's not cold, calculating menace, I don't know what is.
