3 ex-state police lieutenants charged with overtime abuse
BOSTON (AP) — Three former state police lieutenants have been indicted on charges that they received thousands of dollars for overtime hours they didn’t work.
Attorney General Maura Healey’s office said Thursday that David Wilson, John Giulino and David Keefe are charged with larceny, procurement fraud and public employee standards of conduct violation.
They’re the first state charges to be brought against troopers in the ongoing investigations into overtime abuse within the state police. Federal prosecutors have charged multiple troopers.
Prosecutors say the troopers put in for overtime pay for shifts they either left early or didn’t work at all.
Wilson pleaded not guilty in federal court last month to embezzlement from an agency receiving federal funds. His lawyer didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Keefe and Giulino have attorneys.
