NH Library Director Can Get Job Back After Serving Jail Sentence

PELHAM, N.H. (CBS) – A man who will spend the next six months behind bars for stealing $200,000 at work can have his job back when he’s a free man again.

A judge sentenced 46-year-old Robert Rice Jr. on Tuesday for stealing money from the Revere Public Library when he was the director.

He resigned in 2009 and then took a similar position in Pelham, New Hampshire.
