Former Hazlet New Jersey Mayor Sentenced for Corruption

Former Hazlet, New Jersey Mayor Paul A. Coughlin was sentenced to two years in prison on September 22 for taking a $3,000.00 bribe. This recent sentencing represents a continuous scandal of corruption within many levels of New Jersey government.
"We are pleased with the long sentence imposed.  Each time a plea or sentencing occurs in these corruption cases, we hope that other public officials tempted to serve themselves will consider what has happened to Mr. Coughlin and others," said U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Christie. Mr. Christie has an impressive track record in the work of restoring integrity to New Jersey government.
