Portugal was indicted in April by a Jefferson County Grand Jury. Portugal submitted falsified documents and time sheets, 31 times, claiming overtime hours for which he did not work and received $24,935 in fraudulent pay, according to a news release.

A co-defendant in the case, Ricardo Hernandez, who was also a police officer at the time of the allegations, is scheduled for trial on Dec. 12.

Portugal is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 15 and faces a possible prison sentence of up to nine years.
