Judge Removes Counts From NJ Lawyer’s Trial

Townsquare Media File Image

There’s more legal haggling in the case of a well-known New Jersey lawyer charged with conspiring to murder two witnesses.

Paul Bergrin’s first murder trial ended with a deadlocked jury last month.

Next month he’s to go on trial for separate charges that include trying to have a different witness killed.

On Tuesday, a federal judge ruled that the government can’t try Bergrin on all the other counts from a 2009 indictment, including racketeering.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office wants to try Bergrin on all the counts and will appeal the ruling. The office also is appealing the judge’s decision to exclude some evidence from last month’s trial. Bergrin has been in jail since his May 2009 arrest. His former clients include Queen Latifah, Lil’ Kim and other entertainers.
