BOSTON (WHDH) - Four local police officers are facing new charges in connection with an overtime fraud scheme.
“Lieutenant Timothy Torigian, 57, of Walpole; Sergeant Robert Twitchell (retired), 61, of Norton; Officer Henry Doherty (retired), 64, of Dorchester; and Officer Kendra Conway, 52, of Boston, were charged in a superseding indictment with one additional count each of conspiracy to commit wire fraud,” officials with the Department of Justice announced.
The four were initially charged in 2020 along with five other officers.
The officers are accused of collectively embezzling more than $200,000 in overtime pay for hours they did not work.
Charges were dropped against one officer, while four others pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.
If convicted, the officers face up to 15 years behind bars and fines of up to $200,000.
