HOBOKEN – Former Mayor Peter Cammarano will soon find out if his 2010 guilty plea to corruption charges will earn him a lifelong ban from practicing law, according to a report on NJ.com. A lesser sentence would see him disbarred for a shorter period of three years.

Cammarano, who was arrested in 2009 after serving 23 days in City Hall as part of the statewide Bid Rig sting that resulted in the convictions of dozens public officials, pleaded guilty to accepting $25,000 in bribes from informant Solomon Dwek.

Now, the N.J. Supreme Court Disciplinary Review Board (DRB) will rule on Cammarano’s future. The former mayor was admitted to the New Jersey bar in 2002, but his license was temporarily suspended in April 2010. According to NJ.com, the decision lies solely with the DRB, though the state Office of Attorney Ethics has recommended full disbarment.

Cammarano’s attorney, Joseph Hayden Jr., told NJ.com a three-year suspension would be “fair and balanced.” – Dean DeChiaro
