2 NJ troopers lose jobs over high-speed escort

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey state trooper has pleaded guilty to altering the license plate on his patrol car to cover up his role in escorting a caravan of sports cars that traveled at more than 100 mph.

A second trooper in the same case is applying for a pretrial intervention program that would keep his record clean.

The state Attorney General's Office announced Monday that both have forfeited their jobs with the State Police and are barred from working in law enforcement in New Jersey.

Sgt. First Class Nadir Nassry of Phillipsburg pleaded guilty to tampering with records. The state says it's recommending he receive probation.

Trooper Joseph Ventrella of Bloomingdale is trying to enroll in the pretrial program.

The two escorted the caravan in 2012 against State Police policy.
