Two More Guilty Pleas Expected In Massive NJ Corruption Bust

Two more people are expected to enter guilty pleas in connection with the massive corruption bust that netted 44 people in New Jersey, including several mayors, assemblymen, and other political operatives and officials.

The two who are expected to enter guilty pleas were not named, but that's on the heels of guilty pleas entered last week.

There's a simple explanation to enter guilty pleas - expect them to get more lenient sentences, and that they're providing evidence to prosecutors to use against others. I wouldn't be surprised to see additional arrests in coming months as a result of information gathered. It's an incentive for those who were arrested to cooperate or else be left holding the bag.
