Ex-Hudson County Official Gets Probation in Bribery Plot

Denis Jaslow will instead serve two years probation and pay a $5,000 fine under the sentence imposed Tuesday.

Jaslow pleaded guilty to a bribery charge in July 2011. He admitted agreeing to provide a $10,000 bribe to the former mayor of Secaucus on behalf of a man trying to buy influence on development matters.

That man, Solomon Dwek, turned out to be an undercover government informant.

The 48-year-old Jaslow initially pleaded guilty to extortion conspiracy, but the charge was dismissed after a successful legal challenge to some aspects of the wider case.

Jaslow, a former investigator for the Hudson County Board of Elections, has homes in North Bergen and Wall.
