Washington (CNN) - A former office manager for the late Sen. Edward Kennedy was indicted Tuesday for allegedly pocketing more than $75,000 in excess pay. A federal grand jury indicted Ngozi Pole, 39, of Waldorf, Maryland, for submitting paperwork that prompted the Senate to pay him more than he was supposed to receive.
A six-count indictment says Pole transmitted information to the Senate Disbursing Office that caused overpayments to him from 2003 to 2007.
Each of five counts of wire fraud lodged against Pole carry up to 20 years in prison. The count of theft of government property carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.
