Troopers Implicated, Not Charged In OT Scheme Keep Pensions

The state Retirement Board has ruled that 14 retired Massachusetts State Police troopers who were implicated but not criminally charged in an overtime fraud scheme can keep their pensions.

Gov. Charlie Baker and the commander of the state police had asked the board to strip the pensions from the retirees, but because they haven't been charged criminally, they can continue to receive their pensions, the board said in a March 6 memo.

Forty-six current and retired troopers were implicated in the scheme in which they collected overtime pay for shifts they either did not work or did not complete.
