As you folks have heard by now, former Fourth Ward City Councilman Chris Campos was arrested yesterday, as reported in NorthJersey.com (read full article here.)
Campos and three others are charged with "conspiracy to commit bank and wire fraud, and one charge each of bank fraud and wire fraud" with if convicted, could face long prison terms.
According to Hudson County View:
"The conspiracy and wire fraud charges come with a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison, while the wire fraud charge comes with a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, authorities said.
30 + 20 = uh oh
A wife and kids are plenty of incentive to take the shortest road home.
Hudson County View has posted an excellent summary of the criminal complaint. The full complaint is below.
GA has not read through it yet. I will and have more to say later.
In the meantime, there can be no doubt that a conviction means substantial jail time, so the question is, what will Campos do to take the shortest road back home?
