Two former New Jersey Transportation Department supervisors are going to jail for stealing overtime pay.
Authorities say 63-year-old Alkesh Desai of Bensalem, Pennsylvania, and 53-year-old Harish Bhanderi of Newtown, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty to theft by unlawful taking.
They admitted falsifying timesheets to collect emergency overtime pay.
A judge on Friday ordered Bhanderi to serve 364 days in the county jail after he completes three years of probation. He paid full restitution of $19,905.
Desai was ordered to pay $14,882 in restitution and spend 364 days in the county jail as a condition of three years of probation, with the jail sentence to be served at the end of probation.
Both are barred from future public employment in New Jersey.
