A judge ordered Trenton’s mayor, a convicted felon, out of office Wednesday, according to published reports.
Mayor Tony Mack, who was convicted earlier in the month on six counts of extortion, bribery and mail and wire fraud for accepting bribes, was ordered out of office by Judge Mary Jacobson, according to the Times of Trenton.
"Once you are fond guilty by a jury of your peers not only does the presumption of innocence disappear but with it comes the stigma and the shadow ... of being found guilty by a jury of your peers of crimes of dishonesty,” Jacobson said according to the report. “ And it makes no sense to this court to interpret the forfeiture statue to allow a period of three or four months.”
Mack's attorney was reportedly fighting to keep the embattled mayor in office until his sentencing.
