Ritacco Sentencing Moves To September
Sentencing for former Toms River Schools Superintendent Michael Ritacco undergoes another rescheduling, this time set for September 14. It was to have taken place last month.
Ritacco pleaded guilty in April to mail fraud and conspiracy in a tangled federal probe that centered on kickbacks on insurance policies peddled by a Maryland broker.
He originally faced 27 counts but confessed to having a role the transfer of as much as $2,500,000 in bribes involving broker Francis Gartland and others.
Ritacco risks a prison term of up to 14 years.
