Unemployment Benefit Thieves

by NBC10/AP | Dec 29, 2004
Unemployment Benefit Thieves Authorities have charged eight New Jersey residents with collecting unemployment checks while they were working.

Attorney General Peter Harvey's Office says the eight collected more than $58,000. Each is charged with theft by deception and unsworn falsification, and faces fines and jail time if convicted.

John Collette is charged with bilking the Labor Department of $7,000 in unemployment while working as a union steelworker.

The state says the Atlantic City resident worked at 11 different jobs while he was collecting benefits.

The 41-year-old also collected union unemployment he was not entitled to, according to the state.

Collette and seven others were indicted by a state Grand Jury.
