The deputy director of the New Jersey Office of Information Technology was charged with forgery and falsifying records on information and documents submitted for his $422,500 home loan, officials said Wednesday. Raymond Hayling II, age 32, of Englewood, was charged with forgery and tampering with records, suspended today without pay from his $107,382 a year job and locked out of state computer systems, authorities said.

Hayling allegedly forged documents to support his mortgage loan application, and lied about his financial situation and salary, his ability to repay the loan and his income from a rental property, said Stuart Rabner, New Jersey Attorney General.

If convicted, Hayling faces up to six and a half years in prison and $25,000 in fines.

Employed by the Department of Law and Public Safety, he had worked one day a week for the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, officials said.
