New Jersey Law Enforcement Officer Pleads Guilty To Fraud

U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick announced Thursday a Jersey City law enforcement officer pleaded guilty to receiving compensation from Jersey City for off-duty work that he did not perform.

Fifty-three-year-old David Ortmann of Carlstadt, New Jersey admitted to conspiring with a Jersey City law enforcement officer who was authorized to assign off-duty work from July 2015 through May 2016. Ortmann consented to letting the officer submit bogus vouchers to Jersey City for off-duty assignments, resulting in Ortmann being compensated for work he never performed, according to the news release.

Prison

Ortmann was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit fraud, which carries a maximum five-year prison sentence and $250,000 fine. He must also forfeit $12,617. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 3, 2018.
