NEWARK, N.J. - A federal grand jury has indicted the mayor of New Jersey's capital on corruption charges.
Trenton Mayor Tony Mack, his brother, and an associate are accused in an eight-count indictment of extortion, bribery, and mail and wire fraud.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said the charges are related to an alleged scheme to accept $119,000 in bribes in exchange for Mack's influence in the development of a garage on city-owned land.
The indictment was handed up Thursday in Trenton.
Mack has continued in his position despite a no-confidence vote by the City Council after his September arrest.
