Operation Bid Rig III Update: James King pleads out September 24, 2009

James King, a former Hudson County undersheriff and one of the Operation Bid Rig 3 defendants admitted today that he took bribes from an undercover government informant (Dwek).  He is now the fifth defendant to plead guilty in connection to July’s corruption sting.  Obviously, the defense attorneys are really fighting hard huh?  (sarcasm)

While running for the Jersey City Council, he took between $5,000 and $10,000 from Dwek.  In exchange, King promised that if elected, he would help secure zoning changes for Dwek who was posing as a developer that was building a luxury condominium project.

I see no indication that he implicated anyone else, so this seems like a rather uneventful plea.  Story is here.
