NEW BRUNSWICK, New Jersey — A Sayreville police officer who admitted stealing more than $20,000 in rent paid by the town's housing authority will not have to serve a prison sentence.

Stephen Gulick instead was ordered Monday to serve three years of probation. The 14-year veteran also will have to resign from the police force and repay the money.

The 51-year-old Gulick had pleaded guilty in June to theft by deception.

The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office says Gulick collected federal money to subsidize rent paid by a female tenant at a property he owned. Gulick later married the woman, but continued to cash the checks even though she was no longer eligible for aid.
