BEYOND BERGEN (YOU READ IT HERE FIRST): A federal grand jury today indicted the deputy director of the Hudson County Correctional Center on charges of illegally wiretapping jail employees.
Kirk Eady, 46, used a website to call four employees from the Kearny facility while concealing his own number, making it appear as though they — and not he — placed the call, the FBI previously said in a complaint on file in U.S. District Court in Newark.
Eady, who surrendered to federal authorities in January, also recorded the conversations between March and July of 2012, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman said.
He revealed what he’d allegedly done to a federal cooperator, the U.S. Attorney said.
Eady, of East Brunswick, is charged with intentionally intercepting the wire, oral or electronic communications of others.
Federal agents raided the jail in March 2013, taking documents and other items from administrative offices.
Sources at the time said the probe was focused on Eady.
