Hudson County Assemblyman pleads guilty to corruption charges
Assemblyman Anthony Impreveduto (D-Hudson) pleaded guilty to corruption charges Friday. Authorities say he is charged with using campaign contributions for paying his income taxes and personal trips.
Impreveduto, who served Bergen and Hudson counties, waived an indictment. The Attorney General said the fact that Impreveduto did not get indicted shows the strength of the case against him.
Officials say Impreveduto must resign his Assembly seat immediately and he will also lose his job with the Secaucus Public Schools, where he served as a teacher and administrator. Also as part of his punishment, Impreveduto must donate any existing campaign funds to an approved charity in New Jersey. He will be forced to make restitution, the amount to be decided on his sentencing date in January.
