Jury Gets Instructions in Trenton Mayor’s Trial
A federal judge is giving instructions to jurors as the corruption trial of Trenton Mayor Tony Mack and his brother nears a conclusion.
The trial included 13 days of testimony by prosecution witnesses and a single defense witness. After the lawyers’ final arguments, jurors can begin deliberating.
The mayor’s lawyer did not present any witnesses.
The lawyer for his brother, Ralphiel Mack, called only one of his client’s friends.
Tony Mack has continued to serve as mayor of New Jersey’s capital city since he was arrested in September 2012. The brothers are charged with taking bribes to help a developer.
