A Transportation Security Administration officer who pleaded guilty in February to federal charges that he stole from passengers during screenings at Newark Liberty International Airport was sentenced Tuesday to six months of home confinement, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Officer Al Raimi, 30, of New Jersey, pleaded guilty earlier this year in U.S. District Court in Newark.

He admitted that he would “kick up” money to his supervisor, Michael Arato, 42, also of New Jersey, who in turn allowed him to keep stealing.

Arato was sentenced on June 7 to 30 months in prison for his part in the crime, according to Matt Reilly, spokesman at the United States Attorney’s Office.
