MINOR, FORMER PROSECUTOR AND JUDGE, PLEADS GUILTY IN WITNESS BRIBERY CASE

The N.J. Law Journal reports:

Former Essex County prosecutor and Newark municipal judge Clifford Minor pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges related to accepting $3,500 to arrange a false criminal confession. Minor, 68, faces up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines on the most serious charges — records falsification and obstruction — and must permanently surrender his law license, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman’s office said in announcing the guilty plea. Sentencing is set for July 18. Minor remains free on a $250,000 bond. According to an indictment made public last fall, Minor, who runs a Newark criminal defense firm, took money to help execute a plan in which an innocent man would admit to another mans criminal conduct in a gun possession case.
