Hempstead Town Clerk Mark Bonilla's harassment case was adjourned until March 11 in District Court in Hempstead Tuesday.

Bonilla was charged with three misdemeanors on Sept. 21. The charges stem from allegations he tried to obtain "intimate and personal photographs" of a female subordinate who had accused him of sexual harassment, according to a criminal complaint.

He faced calls for his resignation in the wake of the charges last year, but said he will not step down. He has pleaded not guilty.

Bonilla supervises about 125 employees and is paid $129,500 annually. He is charged with two counts of official misconduct, coercion and attempted petty larceny.
