through and the checks kept coming. more than 350,000 dollars since the guilty plea.by the time he was convicted he was retired for several years so nobody at the school notified the retirement system. and the state which revoked the anything either. what break down is that. >> is that's significant. and i -- that's a significant breakdown and you doing the story is a great eye opener. >> reporter: ken blancheette is a former lawmaker that rote the legislation that strips public employees of pensions. >> violate the public trust you don't have a right to a pension that's taxpayer supported for the rest of your life. >> reporter: i want your response do you feel you should be able to keep your pension? >> no comment. >> reporter: after the i-team raised questions the state retirement board is taking action. his attorney argued he has been punished enough. >> he is admitted responsibility and paid back the school. >> reporter: but the law is if you are convicted of a crime related to the job you your
6:13 pm
why is this any different? >> it was not connected to his job. >> reporter: at the end of the week he will find out if that argument prevails or if he has to refund thousands of taxpayers dollars. department of education officials tell the i team they are using this case as a catalyst to review whether there's more they can do to communicate with the retirement system and that would be to make sure taxpayers are not mistakenly paying out pension funds as well. >> speak of that that's. >> the only case. >> reporter: tomorrow night at 6 a very unique case about a convicted former police chief and why retirement officials might now be moving to revoke his pension. 20 years after that conviction. >> interesting we will wait to see that. thanks very much. if you have a story for ryan or e-team 617-779-tips. here we are as we begin the first excuse me the last full week of february. >> just like that. >> you can feel the change in
6:14 pm
at this beautiful full moon. >> it doesn't matter what it's doing with the temperature as long as it is bright outside. it's one of the days and full moon is gorgeous so if you are outside look up tonight and it's the full snow moon which is appropriate considering we have snow less than 24 hours from now and right next to it you get a 2 fer. jupiter this evening. and in terms of the snowfall, that will be arriving after 4 p.m. tomorrow. so headlines here as we watch another storm system move in and this is almost exactly the same script as what we saw last week. the start is a burst of snow with one to three inches i've cross the area starting between 4 and 7 tomorrow evening. and then we do the transition over to freezing drizzle and freezing rain so tomorrow night between 11 and into wednesday, it will be icy areas and doesn't look like enough to cause power outage. but very slick travel outside. and then there's the warmup stage which begins on wednesday night and into thursday and we spike to 60 and we get heavy rain and a chance for damaging winds. so really, i mean you couldn't
6:15 pm
one thing that sticks out that's different is it's not as cold before the storm. so we have 30s out there tonight and last storm had act being air before it. we had the record setting cold and so surfaces were really cold and as soon as it rained or snowed it got slick as lopping as roads are treated tomorrow night they will probably be in okay shape. high pressure in coal. this is -- control this is the area to watch and the storm system comes out in two parts starting tomorrow. but for tonight mainly clear skies and upper teens to lower 20s and light winds a chilly start to the day tomorrow. and we will watch the clouds thicken up. a little morning sun and otherwise we turn to overcast skies and it's going to be a very raw chilly day and snow starts moo move -- starts to move n between 4 and 7 lower visibility especially from the pike southward and then that's going to transition over to freezing drizzle. and what is the case we mentioned last week, models try to get the cold out of here too quickly. heading towards wednesday morning, it's likely the temperatures outside 128 will likely be at or below freezing.
6:16 pm
and i think towards the cape and islands you will warm up on wednesday a little bit. but most of the interior is going to stay in the 30s all day long on wednesday. so it's going to be very chilly outside and staying icy in some spots. but the initial thumb of up -- thump of snow and then ice and then warmth. that starts tomorrow night. i think the big of the idea is if you get the snow and ice inland, it's not going wash away until late on wednesday night and into thursday. and that's when the warmer air pours northward and a line of downpour also be moving through on thursday morning with strong winds and a lot of very warm air makes its way up the eastern seaboard and the know is way west for the storm. looking at rain totals one to two inches could see street flooding on thursday morning and heaviest downpours and the strongest winds will be along with the really heavy rain on thursday morning. so out of the south we could see some gusts over 50 miles per hour. and again the chance for scattered power outages outside maybe limbs trees coming down like last week.
6:17 pm
into the day on friday also. here's accu-weather seven-day a sloppy weather week for us. going from the snow tomorrow and iciness on wednesday and rain on thursday and friday gusty and colder staying in the 30s and weekend right now looks quiet. lee a.m. and paula. >> we like that. -- liam and paula. >> we like that. certain things you have to savor the end of winter the sight of big arriving at spring training for the last time. >> did he look better than panda. >> yes, he better. elvis arrived and he reported today and he had a big smile on his face. let's not forget this is his final year and he said it and is sticking to it. check out big papi at the end of the workout hitching a ride. on golf cart. ortiz says it was going to be him next year so perhaps he is thinking ahead to coaching duties after he retires. dan roche won't retire and he
