An indictment made public Thursday by the Nassau district attorney detailed the alleged actions of three Nassau County Police Department officials she accuses of conspiring to derail burglary and larceny charges against the son of a man who prosecutors said is a major police donor.

Here is a timeline, according to the district attorney. The indictment did not identify the civilians, whom lawyers in the case identified as Zachary Parker, now 20, and his father, Gary Parker.

July 29, 2008. Deputy Chief of Patrol John Hunter is "instrumental" in getting the son a job as a civilian employee of the department's ambulance unit.

May 19, 2009. An administrator at John F. Kennedy High School in Bellmore reports the theft of electronic equipment, names the suspect and demands an arrest.

May 21. An unindicted co-conspirator meets with a school administrator, who "would not consider the withdrawal of criminal charges." Hunter tells the detective squad commanding officer that the theft investigation should be handled by the squad and not Internal Affairs. A friend of the suspect, Zachary Parker, takes some of the stolen equipment to police.

May 22. Det. Alan Sharpe, in charge of the theft investigation, "at the behest of Hunter," meets with Gary Parker.

May 23. Hunter meets with Gary Parker in a diner to discuss the theft.

May 26. Hunter exchanges emails with Gary Parker about the situation. Parker says the school district "was still looking at the options." Hunter tells Parker to let him know if he can help with anything.

May 30. Hunter initiates an email exchange with Gary Parker offering his help. Parker requests that Hunter get Sharpe and the police to "lay low" on the criminal investigation.

June 12. Hunter tells the father when and where the stolen equipment should be returned, and says he is making arrangements for the return. The father gives Hunter the name of a school administrator who will accept the stolen property.

June 15. Hunter emails Sharpe to return the stolen property as arranged by Gary Parker.

June 16. Sharpe orders a squad detective to return the property, but the school administrator refuses to sign a withdrawal of prosecution form and Sharpe tells the detective to bring the property back to the precinct.

June 17. Hunter emails Gary Parker and instructs him to tell the school what is required before the equipment can be returned. Gary Parker emails Hunter that "lawyers are trying to work out a settlement that will not involve the PD. The school wants this to quietly go away." Parker tells Hunter that the school and its lawyer have not contacted the district attorney.

June 18. Hunter emails Gary Parker and offers to talk to Zachary Parker's attorney. Gary Parker approaches Det. Sgt. William Flanagan to ask for his assistance in getting the stolen property returned to the school. Flanagan, who one month later is promoted to deputy commissioner, tells Parker he will look into it and not to worry about it.

June 23. Flanagan emails Gary Parker that Flanagan "put the pieces in motion" to have the property returned.

July 22. Flanagan informs Gary Parker that he "spoke to someone in the loop" the previous day and the property would be returned.

Aug. 10. Flanagan calls the squad and asks about the status of the property. Sharpe emails an unindicted co-conspirator and directs that person return the stolen property to the person who reported the theft to police.

Aug. 17. Flanagan responds to an email from Gary Parker, who said he "wanted this over." Flanagan emails Parker that the detective who will return the property is on vacation, and that the "detective has a personal relationship with the principal, that's why he was given the task." Flanagan said he had "stayed in contact" with the squad supervisor and that the supervisor was "aware of the importance" of having the property returned. Flanagan tells Parker "it'll happen."

Sept. 1. An unindicted co-conspirator is ordered by Sharpe to return the property to the person who reported the theft. The school official accepted the property but refused to sign the form agreeing to withdraw charges.

Sept. 9. Flanagan emails Gary Parker that "delivery" of the property was made the week before. Parker replies: "THANK YOU!!!!!" Flanagan replies: 'de nada family.' "

Sept. 10. Flanagan accepted gift cards from the suspect's parents and emails that the gift was "[o]ver the top."

Sept. 19. Sharpe and an unindicted co-conspirator approve and enter into the department's computer system a closeout memo that falsely claims that the school administrator, on behalf the district, did not wish to proceed with criminal charges.
