Four Pa. officers resign amid federal charges

The Associated Press

SHENANDOAH, Pa. — Four northeastern Pennsylvania police officers who were arrested earlier this month on federal charges have resigned from their jobs.

The Shenandoah Borough Police Department has only three officers after the resignations of Chief Matthew Nestor, Capt. Jamie Gennarini, Officer Jason Hayes and Lt. William Moyer were accepted Tuesday night. State police are helping patrol the town.

The four were arrested Dec. 15.

Nestor, Moyer and Hayes are accused of orchestrating a cover-up in a Mexican immigrant's beating death by altering evidence or lying to the FBI in a case against two white high school football players. Nestor and Gennarini are charged with extortion and civil rights violations in a separate case.
