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.

The chairman of the Pelham Library Trustees said Rice’s job is safe as long as we wants it, according to the Eagle-Tribune.

On top of his jail sentence, Rice must pay $260,000 in restitution.

    Is this a great country or what? You can steal $200,000 from a company and then get your job back!?

    I am being incredibly sarcastic, of course. The Trustees of that library are complete morons. I guess that’s how they do things in Revere.

    And obviously the Pelham, NH hiring committee didn’t look into this guy’s past.
