Sharpe James Given a Slap on the Wrist

Author: Rory B. Bellows

A New Jersey Judge ignored the long standing corruption and shady practices of Mayor Sharpe James and instead allowed his bleeding heart to be won over by “character” witnesses for the former Mayor of Newark who abused public trust and fattened his wallet. Former Newark Mayor Sharpe James was sentenced to 27 months in prison because the Judge William J. Martini decided the only victim in James scheme to steer development contracts to his girlfriend was the public trust. Not for nothing, but violating the public trust is the most serious offense an official can commit.
