Ex-Trenton Mayor Due to Be Sentenced
The former mayor of New Jersey’s capital city is due to be sent to federal prison for corruption.
Forty-eight-year-old Tony Mack is due in court Thursday to learn his sentence. Earlier this year, a jury found him guilty of bribery, fraud and extortion after he was busted as part of a government sting.
His brother Ralphiel Mack was also convicted of participating in a scheme to take bribes in exchange for helping get approvals to develop a parking garage. The former high school football coach is also scheduled to be sentenced Thursday.
Mack remained in office for 19 days after his conviction before a judge ordered him removed from office in February. The judge also stripped Mack of his taxpayer-funded pension.
