On December 18, 2020, a state trooper assigned to the Attorney General’s Office took out a complaint in the Boston Municipal Court against Glenn Kendall, 55, of Lowell for two counts of unwarranted privilege (M.G.L. c. 268A, § 26).

Mr. Kendall worked at Commonwealth Print Services (“CPS”) from 2005 through 2018, the last seven years as its director.  CPS is a state-owned copy and print shop located at One Ashburton Place in Boston that provides print services to state agencies as well as private customers.  In addition, Mr. Kendall owned KenCo Printing (“KenCo”), a private print shop in Medford.

A joint investigation by the Office of the Inspector General and the Attorney General’s Office found evidence that, in 2017 and 2018, Mr. Kendall used CPS computers, copiers and other equipment to produce jobs for his private KenCo customers.  KenCo invoiced its customers more than $20,000 for these jobs, which comprised more than 100,000 pages of print.

On December 21, 2020, Mr. Kendall admitted to sufficient facts to warrant a guilty finding on the charges against him. The case has been continued without a finding subject to Mr. Kendall completing three years’ probation and paying $20,000 in restitution.
