NEWARK, NJ — The deputy director of the Hudson County Correctional Facility was found guilty today of illegally wiretapping his co-workers and another individual, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Kirk Eady, 46, of East Brunswick, N.J. was found guilty of one count of intentionally intercepting the wire, oral or electronic communications of others following a four-day trial before Judge Jose L. Linares. The jury deliberated three hours before returning the guilty verdict.

From March 8, 2012, to July 8, 2012, while working as the deputy director of the Hudson County Correctional Facility, Eady used the services of a website on more than 10 occasions to intercept the telephone calls of other Hudson County Correctional Facility employees and another individual who were critical of his work performance. Eady was able to conceal the telephone number from which the call originated. He then called two of the employees at the same time and made it appear that one or both of the other individuals initiated the call. Eady also recorded these telephone conversations and never told the other employees he was recording these private communications. These individuals did not consent to their private conversations being monitored and recorded by Eady.

The wiretapping count on which Eady was convicted is punishable by a maximum potential penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing is scheduled for July 8, 2015.

U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the FBI, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Richard M. Frankel in Newark, with the investigation leading to today’s guilty verdict.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorneys David L. Foster and Amy Luria of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Special Prosecution Division.
