Megan’s law legislator

If he is convicted of possessing child pornography on his computer, Assemblyman Neil Cohen is looking at likely jail time – and spending the rest of his life as a registered sex offender. That would make him the first legislator to be affected by Megan’s Law, legislation that he supported in the Legislature fourteen years ago.

For extreme junkies: Cohen’s former running mate for the Assembly (in the 1993, 1995, 1997 and 1999 elections) was Joseph Suliga, whose political career also came to an abrupt and surprise end by way of a sex scandal. Suliga was seeking re-election to a second term in the State Senate in 2003 when an incident of sexual harassment on the floor of an Atlantic City casino forced him to drop out of the race.
