Tony Mack Sentenced to Nearly 5 Years
The former mayor of Trenton has been sentenced to nearly five years in federal prison for corruption.
Forty-eight-year-old Tony Mack was sentenced to 58 months on Thursday. He also must do 100 hours of community service and pay $3,000 in fines
Earlier this year, a jury found him guilty of bribery, fraud and extortion while mayor of Trenton. He was busted as part of a government sting.
His brother, Ralphiel Mack, also was convicted. Prosecutors say he participated in a scheme to take bribes in exchange for helping get approvals to develop a parking garage.
Tony Mack remained in office for 19 days after his conviction before a judge ordered him removed from office in February and stripped him of his taxpayer-funded pension.
