    A Paterson-based school bus company owner from Wayne and his manager hired criminals as drivers – including a registered sex offender – and covered it up, state authorities charged. Shelim Khalique, the 51-year-old owner/operator of A-1 Elegant Tours on Paterson Street, and manager Henry Rhodes, 56, of Paterson, hired drivers without background checks or mandatory drug tests while operating unsafe buses, state Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said. Personnel files seized last year revealed that A-1 – which has serviced Essex, Hudson, Passaic and Union counties -- employed several drivers who Grewal said: didn’t have valid commercial driver’s licenses; didn’t have required endorsements; had criminal records. A former driver is a registered sex offender, the attorney general added....
    State authorities on Thursday charged a sitting Paterson councilman, a councilman-elect and two other men with rigging a May 12 special election. Paterson City Councilman Michael Jackson and Councilman-Elect Alex Mendez conspired with Shelim Khalique of Wayne, and Abu Razyen of Prospect Park to play fast and loose with mail-in ballots made necessary for all voting in the special election due to the coronavirus pandemic, Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said. It began, he said, when the U.S. Postal Inspection Service alerted the Attorney General’s Office that hundreds of mail-in ballots were found in a mailbox in Paterson. More were found in a mailbox in nearby Haledon, Grewal added. “Today’s charges send a clear message: if you try to...
    By MIKE CATALINI, Associated Press TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A Paterson city councilman, a councilman-elect and two other men face criminal voting fraud charges stemming from the May 12 special election in the city, Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said Thursday. The investigation began when the U.S. Postal Service's law enforcement arm told the attorney general's office about hundreds of mail-in ballots located in a mailbox in Paterson, along with more found in nearby Haledon, Grewal said. It's unclear what about the ballots tipped officials off to the possibility of a crime, as well as how the alleged wrongdoing unfolded. Grewal doesn't say whether the allegations affected the outcome of the election. But he cast the charges as part of a...
    State authorities busted a Morristown lawyer as part of a major political corruption case that has already produced charges against public officials and political candidates from Hudson and Morris counties. Elizabeth Valandingham, 47, prepared and submitted proposals for the law firm where she worked to the township of Bloomfield for legal services between 2012 and 2016 in which she said the company hadn’t made any political contributions, state Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said. She was lying, he said. “Each year for which Valandingham indicated no reportable political contributions, the firm in fact made contributions,” Grewal said. Valandingham and an unnamed co-conspirator “recruited friends and family members to act as straw donors,” the attorney general said. These people made tens...
    Members of a notorious Trenton gang who controlled a neighborhood drug trade executed a city man, tried to kill a police officer and shot at several other people over a period of several months, state authorities charged. Reputed gangleader Charles Willis, 27, and nine members of his “Get Money Boys” gang are charged with various counts that include murder, attempted murder and conspiracy, state Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said. They were among 16 reputed members and associates of “Get Money Boys,” or “GMB,” who Grewal said sold heroin and cocaine in and around the Oakland Street Apartments. New Jersey State Police seized several guns, along with nearly 20,000 individually wrapped heroin doses stamped “Dope Dick” and “Fruit Loops,” during...

    A New Jersey state trooper stalked a woman while on duty, authorities said Friday. Michael Patterson, 28, of Bayonne first stopped the female motorist for an unspecified offense on the New Jersey Turnpike on Jan. 28, state Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said.

Patterson “put the victim in fear by following her to her home in his patrol vehicle,” the attorney general said. He also “disabled the Digital In-Vehicle Recorder (DIVR) in his vehicle to...
