Part of Hackensack Police Chief’s Conviction Overturned

A judge has overturned portions of a jury’s verdict against a New Jersey police chief who was convicted on insurance fraud and official misconduct charges.

A Superior Court judge Wednesday made the ruling in the case of former Hackensack police Chief Ken Zisa.

The judge overturned Zisa’s conviction on three charges related to official misconduct. His conviction on another misconduct count and an insurance fraud charge still stand.

Zisa’s attorney did not immediately return a message seeking comment. Bergen County prosecutors say they disagree with the judge’s decision.

Zisa was convicted in May of collecting $11,000 stemming from a false accident claim involving his girlfriend.

He was police chief for 15 years and a state assemblyman for eight years.
