Bocchini abdicates controversial case

Mercer County Prosecutor Joseph Bocchini today admitted that comments he made about the investigation of alleged sexual assaults by New Jersey State Troopers may have been “inappropriate” and asked state Attorney General Anne Milgram to assign the case to a different prosecutor.

“Those statements could very well create a public perception that my office should not handle this investigation,” said Bocchini, a former Asssemblyman.
