Former Firefighter Convicted of Theft

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A former Rockford firefighter has been found guilty of stealing money from the city.

52 year-old Brian Watkins doctored his payroll sheets to make it look like he worked more hours than he actually did. The overtime pay added up to thousands of dollars over 2 years.

Judge Truitt set a sentencing hearing for October 4, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. in Ctrm. 314. Watkins could spend as many as 22 years in prison.
