Chester Town Supervisor Alex Jamieson has resigned after pleading guilty to wrongfully collecting unemployment benefits.
Jamieson pleaded guilty to two counts of offering a false instrument for filing. The attorney general's office accused Jamieson of filing for weekly unemployment benefits from 2013-2014 while he was employed as a town official.
As part of the plea agreement, Jamieson has to pay back $5,695 and resign from his position in the town. He will be sentenced to a conditional discharge on November 20.
