The disgraced former head of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will receive about $250,000 more in retirement because he is working in another state job.
Guy Tunnell resigned from the FDLE amid criticism for getting involved in investigating the death of a teenager who was roughed up by guards at a Bay County boot camp.
Tunnell will receive an additional $249,221 when he finishes his five-year term in Florida's Deferred Retirement Option Program, said Doug Cherry, state Bureau of Retirement Calculation chief. Tunnell will retire in July 2008 with a lump-sum payment of $535,163.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is avoiding talk of his problems with Congress while he is in Florida.
He didn't take questions from reporters after he gave a speech to the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement. Some senators have called for a perjury investigation of Gonzales.
