CHESTER — As he prepares to fight fraud charges, former sports talk host — and former New Jersey 101.5 personality — Craig Carton has put his nearly-4-acre,  $2.4 million Morris County home up for sale.

The six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home is packed with amenities that according to include:

  • Heated salt water pool
  • 12-seat home theater
  • Exercise room
  • Wood-paneled library
  • Family room
  • Rec room
  • Two-game rooms
  • Eat-in kitchen
  • Dining room
  • Six bedrooms
  • Seven bathrooms
  • Private balcony for the master bedroom

The former New Jersey 101.5 host was arrested in September on charges alleging he misappropriated at least $5.6 million from two investors.

Carton's lawyer, Robert C. Gottlieb, told his client will plead not guilty at his arraignment on Wednesday in Manhattan.

"The indictment is riddled with errors. Craig never intended to defraud a single solitary soul," Gottleib said.
