A retired Amtrak supervisor has admitted soliciting and accepting greater than $7,000 value of things from a New Jersey vendor as a reward for spending greater than $185,000.

Louis Moschitti pleaded responsible Tuesday to corruptly soliciting issues of worth with the intent to be rewarded in reference to transactions of Amtrak, the place he was a constructing and bridges supervisor.

Prosecutors say from April 2010 to July 2013 he used his Amtrak procurement cost card to make greater than $185,000 in purchases from Bayway Lumber in Linden. They are saying he acquired a tv, a digital camera, tires and a sound system as a reward for his official purchases.

The 68-year-old Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, resident faces as much as 10 years in jail when he is sentenced in March.
