NEW YORK (AP) - Two more former Long Island Rail Road workers have been sentenced to probation for their role in a massive disability scam.

Newsday reports (https://nwsdy.li/1mZMR3s ) that Thomas Delalla and Brian Delgiorno received identical sentences of three years probation along with three months home confinement in Manhattan federal court on Friday.

Delalla was ordered to repay $156,742 while Delgiorno has a $160,470 obligation. The amounts apparently represent what they received in disability payments.

Prosecutors have arrested 33 doctors, consultants and former workers in what they say was a long-running scheme to falsify disability claims. Only 10 have been sentenced to prison.

Delalla and Delgiorno apologized for their actions.

The 55-year-old Delalla told the court, “This is something I will have to live with for the rest of my life.”
