First PA Turnpike Defendant Up Will Fight Charges

The first of eight defendants to have a preliminary hearing in a state corruption investigation into the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is planning to contest the charges.  
Former turnpike employee Raymond Zajicek waived his preliminary hearing on Monday.
The 68-year-old Zajicek is retired from his $110,000-a-year job as fare collection operations manager and is living in Florida. He's facing eight charges, including four theft counts. Most of the allegations against Zajicek in a March grand jury report dealt with allegedly performing personal errands on state time. But it also says he occasionally made political fundraising calls during the work day or he requested turnpike employees to perform political activities.
The report described him as a close associate of commission CEO Joe Brimmeier, who is also facing charges.
