HINESBURG, Vt. (AP) - The former water superintendent for the Vermont town of Hinesburg has received a suspended sentence of six to nine months for his role in using a town credit card to commit fraud.
Brian Mattison, 40, will serve 13 days on a furlough to a Community Restitution Program.
The Burlington Free Press reports the investigation began when questions were raised about charges on a $1,700 bill from Mattison for attending the New England Water Association conference in Boston last January. Among the charges was $100 for breakfast for two.
Mattison was scheduled to go on trial this month; he pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of credit-card fraud.
The town said a total of $2,600 was unaccounted for.
