Corruption Trial of Trenton Mayor Delayed to 2014
The mayor of Trenton’s corruption trial has been pushed back again.
Mayor Tony Mack is now scheduled to go to trial in January on six counts related to what prosecutors say was a scheme to accept $119,000 in bribes in exchange for using his influence over the development of a parking garage on city-owned land.
Attorneys in the case attended a status conference in federal court in Trenton on Thursday.
Mack pleaded not guilty in December. A trial initially was scheduled for February but then was pushed back to the summer.
Arrested along with Mack were his brother, Ralphiel Mack and Joseph Giorgianni, a sandwich shop owner and campaign supporter.
