Cop Fired for Alleged OT Theft Will Still Get His Pension

Police brass suspended longtime homicide detective Kenneth Rossiter with intent to dismiss on Monday following an investigation that revealed he allegedly stole overtime from the department. Rossiter supposedly earned $90,000 in OT last year by checking into court, heading home to hang out for the day, and then returning to court at the end of the day to check back out. Now, he’ll be able to begin collecting his $4,606 monthly city pension because the D.A.’s office declined to press charges. City employees fired for wrongdoing are entitled to their pensions unless they’re convicted of a crime. Rossiter denies the claims and says he plans to fight his firing. [Daily News]
