OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A former Occupational Safety and Health Administration employee has been sentenced in Omaha for faking workplace inspection reports.

The Lincoln Journal Star reported that Ricardo Peacock, 38, of Omaha, Monday was given three years of probation and ordered to pay nearly $6,000 in restitution. He’d pleaded guilty to making false statements as an OSHA compliance safety and health officer from Jan. 14, 2015, to March 3, 2016, according to court records.

Prosecutors said Peacock faked 10 inspection reports, including four in Lincoln. One was at a U.S. Postal Service facility.
