3 ex-officers avoid prison in sentence for overtime scheme

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Three former police officers in Kentucky have avoided prison time for falsifying overtime records to collect pay for hours they didn’t work. News outlets report former Louisville Metro police officers Brian Stanfield, Todd Roadhouse and Mark Final were sentenced Thursday to three years probation. Each will have to spend eight months of the sentence on a curfew. Authorities said the three submitted overtime requests for hours they did not work between 2014 and 2017. They covered up the overtime pay by altering arrest records. They were ordered to pay back about $170,000 total in restitution.
