An Easton man on Wednesday pleaded guilty to collecting thousands of dollars in unearned overtime pay by falsely claiming overtime shifts that he did not work.
Kyle Rounsaville, 50, was a technician for the N.J. Department of Transportation, the New Jersey Attorney General's Office said. From January to June 2013, he put in for 300 hours of overtime that he did not work, falsely collecting $14,722.
Rounsaville pleaded guilty to third-degree theft by unlawful taking. Under the terms of his plea arrangement, he must repay the $14,772, and prosecutors will recommend he be sentenced to 180 days in county jail.
