HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The former president and chairman of the board of the Connecticut Lottery Corp. has repaid over $11,000 in improper benefits he received from the state.

The Post reports Frank Farricker paid the state $11,318.19 following a consent order Thursday.

Authorities say Farricker began submitting improper invoices to the lottery for reimbursement when he was appointed interim CEO in 2016. The invoices included charges for cable television, personal phone bills and mileage expenses. According to the Office of State Ethics, the invoices continued on a “near-monthly” basis until Farricker resigned in May.

Farricker had claimed he believed the invoices were for “necessary expenses.”

He stepped down amid a scandal involving a lottery instant game.
