Former Middlesex County Sheriff Joseph Spicuzzo and two men who worked under him have admitted their roles in a jobs-for-cash bribery scheme that operated out of the sheriff’s office.

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman says Spicuzzo pleaded guilty Tuesday to a bribery charge. In return, prosecutors will recommend that he receive a nine-year state prison term.

The 67-year-old Helmetta resident also will have to forfeit his entire state pension and will be permanently barred from public employment in New Jersey.

Former sheriff’s investigator Darrin DiBiasi of Monmouth Junction and former sheriff’s officer Paul Lucarelli of South River pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy to make illegal gifts to a public servant. Prosecutors will recommend they receive probation and a county jail term of up to 364 days in the county jail.
