Three traffic court employees on Long Island have been given their jobs back after being cleared of any wrongdoing in a ticket fixing scam.

Six Nassau County employees were accused of fixing dozens of tickets for themselves, family and friends.

But this week, three of them got their jobs back with full back pay totaling about $190,000 after they were cleared of the allegations. A fourth got her job back but was docked two months pay.

The fifth worker was asked to come back to work, though the investigation against her is continuing.

Only one of the six employees, identified as Angela Petty, was charged with a crime. She has pleaded not guilty.
