Trenton Mayor’s Corruption Trial Delayed Until Summer

Judge postpones Mack's trial on corruption charges until June


The trial of Trenton Mayor Tony Mack on corruption charges won’t start until summer.

Federal court documents show a judge signed a continuance order until June. Mack’s trial was originally scheduled to begin in February.

Mack was indicted on corruption charges in December but has vowed to remain in office. His brother and a close associate have also been indicted.

Mack pleaded not guilty to six criminal counts related to what prosecutors say was a scheme to accept $119,000 in bribes in exchange for using his influence over the development of a parking garage on city-owned land.

Meanwhile, the Trenton City Council will consider a measure this week that would reduce Mack's salary from $126,460 to $65,000.

An earlier attempt to reduce Mack's salary failed.
