YPD Lt. Kelty punished for false OT



Published: Sat, October 8, 2011 @ 1:50 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN

Lt. John Kelty of the Youngstown Police Department has been disciplined by the department for submitting false overtime hours.

The discipline was mentioned in a court filing this week from Atty. J. Gerald Ingram, who represents defendants in a criminal case before Judge Maureen A. Sweeney of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

In the filing, Ingram argues that he should be allowed to question the veteran police officer on cross-examination at trial about the overtime matter because it might be evidence of his untruthfulness.

An attempt to reach Youngstown Police Chief Rod Foley to obtain details of Kelty’s punishment Friday night were unsuccessful.

According to 21 WFMJ-TV, The Vindicator’s broadcast partner, Kelty is serving a two-week unpaid suspension and must give up a week of vacation time, which will cost him about $5,000.

Fire him and take away his pension.

Agreed! This is a good reason for Issue 2 to be kept (it's SB5). And firing, too.

The guy is a Lieutenant; if he was a patrolman on the beat, it's the same. Fired. This "officer" knew better.

You get fired in the Private Sector of the economy. Maybe the slap on the wrist is because of the UNION?

If the facts presented by the Vindicator surrounding this incident are accurate, the burning question is: Why hasn't the moral crusader and sometime city prosecutor Jay Macejko filed criminal charges against this individual? Come on Vindicator - Ask the question!
