West New York Corruption Continues

Posted: Updated:
West New York, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Corruption seems to keep following the Mayor of West New York. Two years ago Mayor Felix Roque was brought up on hacking charges which he later beat, but he was back in federal court on Friday for the sentencing of his son, Joseph Roque, who was found guilty of hacking the website of his father’s competitor, recallroque.com, which has now been dismantled.

Joseph was sentenced to one-year probation, a $2,500 fine and 100 hours community service.

Many West New Yorkers don’t agree with this whole situation and feel like the Mayor got away with this scheme by blaming it all on his son.

Concerned citizens are also unhappy with the fact that right after the mayor beat his federal hacking charges a few years back, he assigned his two criminal defense lawyers to the town payroll.

In addition to this, a new FBI investigation is looming in the town for matters that have not been made public at this time.
