Bucks retirement officials pinch pensions of former county employees

Bucks retirement officials pinch pensions of officials in co

Bucks County officials have pinched the pensions of two troubled county workers.

The county retirement board has ruled on County Register of Wills Barbara Reilly and one of her employees, Rebecca Kiefer.

The county will not match the ladies' nine percent contribution to their pensions.

They'll also lose any interest they've attained.

Reilly and Kiefer pleaded guilty last month to corruption charges.

Prosecutors say they made other county employees work for Republican candidates on county time.

Reilly and Kiefer will be sentenced after the trial of James McCullen.

He's facing lesser charges in the case.
