Jail, fine for 2 ex-Tucson workers in theft case

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Two former Tucson Department of Transportation employees who used city equipment for side jobs have been sentenced to jail and fined.

Pima County prosecutors say Kurt Hough and Robert Palomarez each were given 60 days in the county jail and ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution Thursday. They also were sentenced to three years' probation.

The men earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of theft for their involvement in using city construction equipment and building material for private jobs.

They were among five Transportation Department workers who resigned or were fired in September after an investigation found they had done private construction jobs on city time.

The Arizona Daily Star says Hough and Palomarez both will be eligible for work release during their jail sentences.
