Investigation: Accused Vt. cop overcharged $213,000

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - New documents allege that a former Vermont State Police sergeant accused of padding his time sheets obtained overpayments of nearly $212,000 over six years.

James Deeghan is expected to face new criminal charges.

Deeghan is due in court on Monday for a change-of-plea hearing on two felony charges that he claimed 63 hours of overtime in June that he didn't work.

The Burlington Free Press reports that investigators had believed he overcharged almost $140,000 from Dec. 21, 2008 to July 14, 2012. But a new police affidavit filed Friday said the investigation now showed that Deeghan had overcharged nearly $212,000.

Deeghan resigned in July.
