Nadir Nassry, the retiring state police sergeant who pleaded guilty to falsifying/tampering with records, a felony, will be getting a pension. The four members of the State Police Retirement Board decided this week that he could keep his retirement, although at the pay grade for the reduced position of staff sergeant. That means he is eligible for an annual pension of $68,000 rather than $80,000.

"Looking at his entire record, they felt he had a clean record before this incident and that entered into their judgement," said William Quinn a spokesman for the Treasury Department.

Yet addressing the board before their decision Nassry spoke of hundreds of police escorts over the years, that it was routine, and said that speed limits were routinely broken. So, is that okay?
