TRENTON – A federal court judge sentenced a former attorney for Bergen County Democrats to three years of probation for his role in a mail fraud scheme and for failure to file federal income tax returns.
Dennis Oury, the former attorney to the northern Democratic Party and borough attorney for Bergenfield, avoided time behind bars after he pleaded guilty in 2009 to one count of conspiring to commit mail fraud and one count of failing to file federal income tax returns.
Oury was sentenced today in Newark, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
He was indicted in 2008 alongside his business partner and the former Bergen County Democratic chairman, Joseph Ferriero, on several counts of conspiracy and mail fraud charges.
In addition to the sentence of probation, Oury was fined $17,500.

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
