HOBOKEN -- Former Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, who had been in office only three weeks when he was arrested in a July 2009 FBI sting of politicians, is scheduled to be sentenced at 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 5. (His sentencing was pushed back from Tuesday).
After his arrest, Cammarano initially refused to resign and did so only after pressure from Democratic leaders and from residents who staged protests in front of his house.
The young attorney pleaded guilty in April to one count of “conspiracy to obstruct commerce by extortion under the color of right,” a felony. He could be facing 20 years in prison.
