MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - Two former Hudson County sheriff’s officers who admitted helping a bounty hunter falsify documents have been sentenced for their crimes.

William Chadwick of Keansburg was sentenced to five years in state prison, and Alberto Vasquez of Apex, North Carolina, was sentenced to 90 days in county jail and four years’ probation.

Both men admitted signing documents that falsely indicated bounty hunter Adel Mikhaeil had caught certain fugitives when in fact they had been arrested by law enforcement.

Mikhaeil, formerly of Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, paid both men for signing the documents and providing other information so he could receive higher fees.

Mikhaeil was sentenced in March to six years in prison.

Several others connected to Mikhaeil have pleaded guilty to bribery and other offenses.
