East Brunswick Man Charged With Wiretapping Co-Workers

Deputy Director of the Hudson County Correctional Center facing up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

A township man who works as Deputy Director of the Hudson County Correctional Center was charged Wednesday with illegally wiretapping his co-workers, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Kirk Eady, 45, of East Brunswick, is facing charges for intentionally intercepting the wire, oral or electronic communications of others.

The attorney's office alleged that between March 2012 and July 2012, Eady used  a public web site to place phone calls to four Hudson County Correctional Center employees. The site Eady used allowed him to "conceal the telephone numbers from where the calls originated and also call and record two people simultaneously and make it appear as those people, and not Eady, originated the call," said U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman in a statement.

The conversations were recored by Eady, who did not inform the correctional center employees that he was recording them, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Eady also allegedly admitted to a cooperating witness that he recorded conversations with three of his fellow employees.

Eady is facing is a maximum potential penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
