DOCUMENT: Carmine Intesa indictment

According to the US Attorney’s Office, the indictment filed against Inteso claim he controlled a company that stopped operating by at least 2007. However from July 2005 to June 2008 he used that company to accept hundred of thousands of dollars in commission payments from a Maryland based Insurance broker.

In2006 the insurance broker made more than $133,235 thousand in payments to the sham company, in 2007 he made $127,304 on payments, and in 2008 he made $31,253 in payments.

The indictment says Inteso used the money to pay for his “personal expenses and to withdraw significant amounts of cash from the Sham Company’s bank account.”

However Inteso did not file tax returns for 2006,2007, and 2008.

The Maryland broker’s name is not given in the indictment however it says they “obtained yearly insurance brokerage contracts with, and provided brokerage services for, numerous New Jersey entities, including, but not limited to the Brick Township Board of Education and Toms River.”

Inteso was in elected office until 2007, serving as a committeeman, mayor, deputy mayor, and councilman.
