She put in for time she didn't work, and Monday a former police sergeant in Montgomery County was sentenced for the crime.
A police investigation showed Jacqueline Davey, 39, of Crofton, Md., altered her time sheets from January 2008 to November 2009. She was paid more than $10,000 for work she didn't do, said Capt. Paul Starks, a spokesman for Montgomery County police.
Davey was suspended with pay in December 2009. She resigned in July.
Today, a Circuit Court judge found her guilty of theft.
Davey paid $5,000 in restitution.
