Former Passaic Mayor Sammy Rivera was sentenced to 21 months in a federal prison for taking a $5,000 bribe to steer public contracts. That’s the identical sentence given to former Marlboro Mayor Matthew Scannapieco, who took $245,000 in exchange for delivering contracts.

Rivera was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Freda Wolfson, while Jerome Simandle sentenced Scannapieco.
