Former New Jersey Senate President Pleads Guilty to Corruption

"Today an era of corruption and influence peddling for personal profit has been put to an end. There is no one in this state, no matter how powerful, who is above the law," said U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Christie.

For receiving payments in return for illegal official action and senatorial influence, former N.J. state senator John A. Lynch pleaded guilty on September 15.

Lynch pleaded guilty to one count of mail fraud and one count of tax evasion and faces a federal prison sentence of 33-41 months.
