New Jersey Officer Who Staged Shooting Denied Pension

May 06, 2014  | 

A former police sergeant in Camden, N.J., who arranged for his wife to shoot him in the leg in order to receive a disability pension has been denied in his quest to collect one, according to a report on Philly.com.

A state pension board denied Jeffrey Frett's application Wednesday. A member of the board who heard Jeffrey Frett's case then blasted the Blackwood resident for wasting the board's time.

"No way is this deserving of an accidental-disability pension," John Sierchio said. Sierchio also told the Philadelphia Inquirer it was "insane" the officer was not charged with a more serious offense and that Frett's wife wasn't charged.

Frett, 43, previously admitted that he and his wife had staged the incident in November 2010. Frett pleaded guilty to a disorderly persons offense. His wife, who was pulled over in a van a short distance away after firing on her husband along the side of Interstate 676, was not charged.

Disability pension is not something I recommend to anybody for any reason even when you have no choice. There are huge down sides at every turn. I suspect the pain he has to live with the rest of his life is more than enough punishment.

What. An. Idiot. Both of them.
