Maryland Officer Pleads Guilty to Falsifying $27K Overtime

A Maryland man pleaded guilty to falsifying overtime documents while working as a police officer.

Citing a Howard County police release, news outlets report 41-year-old Clate Moton-Jackson pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count Monday, agreeing to pay $15,000 in restitution and leave his position.

An internal affairs investigation into the 14-year police veteran began in July 2017. He was working as a computer crimes investigator at an off-site location and questions were raised about whether he had submitted false information to the agency.

Investigators determined Moton-Jackson had claimed to be working on multiple dates when he hadn't entered the building. The falsified pay records submitted totaled more than $27,000.
